King's Castle

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


The scheduled monument record describes King's Castle as a 'defended enclosure' - a much rarer creature than the similar age Hill Forts. It's much smaller and may have only been occupied by a single family. (that'd be the King's then). Today the area is wooded and is managed as a nature reserve by the Somerset Wildlife Trust. A stone that stood at its foot is now at Wells Museum. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
