Berry Pomeroy Castle
SX 839-623 Devon England
Berry Pomeroy Castle is an imposing late 15th century stone quadrangular fortress, founded by the Pomeroy family. The walls encase the dramatic ruined shell of a grand Elizabethan mansion of the Seymours. Begun in 1560 and ambitiously enlarged from the early 17th century, it was never completed and abandoned by 1700. Visit pending. 3 miles south-west is Totnes Castle and 4 miles north-east is Compton Castle.
