Beverstone Castle

UK»England»Gloucestershire»Beverstone Castle

Beverstone Castle was originally a medieval stone enclosure fortress or fortified manor house. In the early 14th century, Thomas, Lord Berkeley remodelled the castle, building a small quadrangular stronghold, with a twin-towered gatehouse. Sadly after Civil War slighting, only the west range and one D-shaped tower of the gatehouse remains. The west range, which contained the solar above a vaulted undercroft, is flanked on the angles by square towers. The two storey gatehouse, had a large first floor chamber, above the interior passage which was closed by a portcullis.
