Get directions to here from:-
In Lydford off A386, 8 miles South of Okehampton (OS Map 191; Castle ref SX 510848, Fort ref SX 509847).
Beautifully sited on the fringe of Dartmoor, Lydford boasts three defensive features. Near the centre is a 13th-century tower keep on a mound, later a prison notorious for harsh punishments - 'the most annoyous, contagious and detestable place within this realm.' To the south is an earlier Norman earthwork castle: to the north, Saxon town defences.
All year at any reasonable time.
