We are a group of volunteers who portray life and events at the castle in the years 1200-1230, which is the time of Fulk Fitzwarin the Third and the construction of the main stone structure. You’ll meet members of the permanent garrison of professional soldiers and also some of theworkers who supplied the day-to-day needs of food and clothing. You might meet Fitzwarin himself or members of his family; you’ll certainly be able to ask about military equipment and methods, and about the practical skills of medieval life.
