Berry Pomeroy Castle

Feb 24, 2017 |

Berry Pomeroy Castle is one of South Devon’s hidden heritage gems. Easy to drive to from the English Riviera or from Totnes in the South Hams. These are a selection of my photographs from my study of the building’s architecture between August 2011 and January 2014.

Pedestals of the loggia after designs from the book by Mannerist architect, Sebastiano Serlio 1475-1554.

Two niche seats in the background – right of picture

Twin-towered gatehouse and curtain wall 1450-1496

West façade of the Seymour (St Maur) House, built 1560-1580 of lighter-grey limestone, the immediate bedrock of the courtyard.
