The Defensive Towers

The Towers and Ramparts were largely constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries when the castle was under the ownership of the de Beauchamp family. The family spent vast amounts of their fortune on their construction. They were intended to protect those within the castle walls and symbolised the power and importance of the castle’s Earls.
