Description
Situated near Frome in Somerset, Nunney Castle is a small, French style castle surrounded by a deep moat, built for Sir John Delamare in 1373. A veteran of the Hundred Years War, Sir John would later become Sheriff of Somerset. During the Civil Wars (1642-51) Cromwell's men used cannon to blast a great hole in the north wall of the castle, forcing the garrison to surrender. The badly damaged wall finally collapsed into the moat in 1910.
