Lydford Castle and Saxon Town, Lydford, Devon

Two castles have been built at Lydford, the first immediately in the wake of the Norman Conquest in 1066. The second castle was built on the site of the first castle in c. 1132 AD. It was a 3-storey tower, and the location was excellently picked, with Lydford Gorge on one side, and the land sloping steeply away from it.
