Castle Combe



Although this was later to become a Norman motte and bailey castle, it is thought (according to the smr record on Magic) that the site was originally that of an Iron Age promontory fort, suggested by the fact that immediately below it on the west side is the By Brook, a tributary of the Avon. There's also an extra bank on the NE corner, which also points to a prehistoric origin. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
