On Sunday 9th September 2018, from 2 to 5 pm, Hemyock Castle and Village again took part in this hugely popular celebration of culture and heritage.
Hemyock is set in the now tranquil Culm Valley within the beautiful Blackdown Hills in Devon, just a few miles from the M5 Motorway and Taunton. The rare surviving ruins of Hemyock's moated medieval castle are a scheduled Ancient Monument. Come & view the remaining gatehouse archway, towers & curtain-walls which surround the older manor house. Although situated in the heart of Hemyock village, the castle site is screened by trees and walls, so surprisingly little can be seen from the road.
Special events on Sunday 9th September 2018 from 2 to 5 pm:
Heritage Open Days are part of European Heritage Days, a Council of Europe initiative. They are co-ordinated by The National Trust with funding by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
