If your children are learning about castles this is a great hands-on way to develop their interest, enthusiasm and understanding.
1 Castle Lane - site of two great gateways, Constable's Gate and Bydon Gate.
Castle Lane footpath - standing in the moat and looking up at the motte. (please note- motte closed at the moment)
3 I am standing on the site of the old North Gate of the town.
4 I am in the same place, but now looking at the Barbican.
The barbican was an outer defence of a castle, usually protecting a gateway.
5 I have arrived at the Dernegate, my last stop.
By the time of the 14th Century, Wallingford Castle had three walls and three moats, meaning that Wallingford Castle had become a concentric castle.
