We have had a fantastic day visiting Tiverton Castle. We loved dressing up as Knights, Kings, Princesses and ladies, along with a Spider and Dinosaur! We learnt so much.
Over 900 years ago, the first castle was built on a hill and was made out of wood, this was called a ‘Mot and Bailey Castle’. It didn’t last very long. Toilets in castles were very different and were only big holes in the ground.A lot of castles today, are run down and parts of them have been destroyed because of age and war. The steps leading to the tower were very steep.
