St Briavels Castle  Damage advised by English Heritage

Recent extremely heavy rainfall has led to partial collapse of part of the inner Bailey wall of the Castle. With public safety being paramount part of the moat is cordoned off with warning signs displayed in the area adjacent to the curtain wall, which is necessary to keep people safe. English Heritage advise there will be regular safety checks and specialist assessments undertaken until appropriate repairs can be made as soon as possible in the new year.
