Castle Cary has many other fine eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings, including houses and factories. There are several different walks around the town, some taking you past these sites of interest and some offering spectacular views of the town as a whole and of the countryside around, even across towards Glastonbury and the Levels. Pick up copies of the leaflets from the Tourist Office, or download them below:

The Castle

Tuesday, March 24, 2015|

Once one of the largest castles in twelfth-century England; sadly the stones have long since been removed, but behind the town, on the lower slopes of Lodge Hill, you can still see the remains of the motte and bailey and other earthworks.
