du Plain

DuPlain Castle sits about one day’s ride to the east from Sarum. It consists of a walled town with motte on natural promontory and two baileys.

Castle DuPlain is one of the early fortifications in Salisbury. It was constructed by Robyn, Dominus Sorviodunum in late 450’s as a way to defend against common bandit raids from Hantonne and as a precautionary defensive line against Silchester.

The castle is a Motte and Bailey without any waterworks. It holds a permanent garrison of troops supplied by local lords.
