About Berry Pomeroy Castle (English Heritage)
Bring your teaching to life and inspire your students at Berry Pomeroy Castle. Within the 15th-century defences of the Pomeroy family castle, looms the dramatic ruined shell of its successor, the great Elizabethan mansion of the Seymours. Begun in around 1560 and ambitiously enlarged from around 1600, their mansion was never completed and was abandoned by 1700, when it became the focus of blood-curdling ghost stories!
