On Sunday 11th September 2005, from 2 to 6 pm, Hemyock Castle and Village again took part in this hugely popular celebration of culture and heritage.
Hemyock is set in the now tranquil Culm Valley within the beautiful Blackdown Hills in Devon, just a few miles from the M5 Motorway and Taunton. Hemyock Castle is a scheduled Ancient Monument.
Although situated in the heart of Hemyock village, the castle site is screened by trees and walls so surprisingly little can be seen from the road.
Special events on Sunday 11th September 2005 from 2 to 6 pm included:
Part of European Heritage Days - a Council of Europe Initiative.
Heritage Open Days are co-ordinated by the Civic Trust which receives some funding from the Department for National Heritage. Hemyock Castle receives no funding, and makes no charge for entry on Heritage Open Days. Donations are welcomed to Prem's Village Fund for Tsunami Relief in Sri Lanka.
