Earthworks of Culverhay Castle
|Grid reference||grid reference|
Culverhay Castle was built in a ringwork design in the village of Englishcombe, Somerset. The ringwork ditch and bank, up to 5 feet (1.5 m) deep, is to the east of the village church. During the first half of the 13th century a stone circular keep and low curtain wall was built at the castle, along with one or two other stone buildings within the ringwork. A medieval deer park may have been attached to the castle.
Estimates of the date of the original building range from the late 11th century to the early 13th century.
