Nunney Castle Title Pic

Nunney Castle is a small castle built by Sir John de la Mare in 1373. The castle employs a style of architecture inspired by French castles, which he may have seen during the Hundred Years War.

The castle is shaped like a narrow rectangular box with a round tower on each corner. The four story building is surrounded by a moat, which originally extended up to the walls, with a drawbridge at the door.

The north wall was damaged by cannon fire in 1645 when the castle was captured during the English Civil Wars.

My reconstruction of Nunney Castle is 20 x 30 inches (64 x 96 studs) and is about 21 inches high. Details of the roof and parapets are based on speculation.
