Cullompton in England

Walking through England 1640's Click Me to Migrate

Cullompton Tower.

Both Awliscombe and Cullompton show no remains of the Castles but their Towers are what is the first thing noticed. Noted in transcripts of the wars during the Cromwell Massacre the Manors and Castles were destroyed in most of the cases except where the traitors of the family had made deals to remain after their family had been extinguished. This tower draws upon many of the numerous common traits in the Chevers style of Masonic work. Close examination's of the remains of other Chevers Castles placed their church's close to one of the towers. This would be an explanation as to why a few towers remained that had church's attached. This was the last stronghold in many of the battles.
