Devizes

Devizes Castle, also known as Borders or “Castle on the Borders” , sits over two day’s ride to the North from Sarum. It consists of a walled town with motte on natural promontory and two baileys.

Once an old Hillfort this castle was fortified and rebuilt by the last three generations of earls, in several occasions. It now stands as one of the most well defended positions in the region and protects the northern borders of Salisbury against any potential threats. The town also hold large stables within the fortified town to hold most of the Lord’s horses, and therefore traditionally the castellan is also the Constable of Salisbury.
