Exeter Castle

You'll walk or drive past Rougemont Castle (Exeter Castle) Norman gatehouse as you enter the Exeter Castle Apartments courtyard. The gatehouse is said to be the oldest standing castle building in England.

Look out for the plaque on the gatehouse which reads: 'The Devon Witches. In memory of Temperance Lloyd, Susannah Edwards, Mary Trembles of Bideford died 1682. Alice Molland died 1685. The last people in England to be executed for witchcraft tried here & hanged at Heavitree. In the hope of an end to persecution and intolerance.'

There's more information about the castle and gatehouse on an information board on site. This is part of the Exeter City Wall Trail.
