Castle Neroche

UK»England»Somerset»Castle Neroche

Castle Neroche: Wooded circular walk on the northern slopes of Blackdown Hills based around an Norman motte-and-bailey castle based on an earlier bronze age hill fort site. All that remains is the earthworks. Excellent view of Taunton from the top sweeping down into Neroche Forest with well designated footpaths.
