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 2016 from 2 to 5 pm included:



Heritage Open Days are part of European Heritage Days - a Council of Europe Initiative. They are co-ordinated by The National Trust. Hemyock Castle receives no funding, and makes no charge for entry on Heritage Open Days. Donations are welcomed to The Blackdown Support Group.

Note. Despite the closure of The Civic Trust, this popular event continues: The National Trust has now taken over the coordination of Heritage Open Days.
