4/21 Walls of bailey to Old Wardour
Partly in Tisbury C.P. Bailey walls. Remodelled in 1570s for Sir
Matthew Arundell by Robert Smythson. Dressed limestone walls about
6 metres or more high, partially enclosing a hexagon with a
rectangular extension to the north-east, reflecting the plan of Old
Wardour Castle itself. Walls have chamfered plinth and pitched
copings, damage to north-west stretches attributed to siege damage
during the Civil War. Robert Smythson improved the castle and its
setting for the Arundells, shortly after he worked at Longleat for
Sir John Thynne.
