      Built in the aftermath of a substantial revolt against Norman rule, Totnes Castle was constructed over a portion of the Saxon settlement it was designed to dominate. The earth and timber motte-and-bailey structure was rebuilt in stone in the late thirteenth century but by this time it had become an administrative site rather than a military outpost. From Saxon beginnings to today’s vibrant market town, Totnes has a national reputation for its many notable buildings and monuments. One of the best ways to explore the town’s rich history and charming architecture is by following our town walk. Built of rich red Devonian sandstone.
