Devon Castles

Devon has a fascinating array of castles and historic fortifications.  This concise history explains how they were developed and altered over the centuries to meet the changing needs of the people who used them.  It concentrates of true castles – medieval strongholds which were also homes – but covers earlier and later fortifications as well, from Iron Age hillforts to Castle Drogo, England’s newest castle, completed in 1930.
