The History of Lancaster Castle Pt1

Written by Stuart Bazga

Welcome to Lancaster Castle or as it is commonly known John O’ Gaunt’s Castle.

In part 1, we will take a trip back in time discoveringrepparttar origins ofrepparttar 135497 castle fromrepparttar 135498 early Roman period torepparttar 135499 present day. You will discover how it went from a simple Roman fort to a great bastion, and then converted to a prison. The use of which, has lasted for over 3 centuries

The Castle has stood in various forms for over 900 years with a history to match. I hope to give you a glimpse into its past life and invite you to further discover Lancaster Castle for yourselves.

Lancaster Castle stemmed from an original fort built byrepparttar 135500 Romans overlookingrepparttar 135501 town of Lancaster andrepparttar 135502 River Lune to help combatrepparttar 135503 invading forces ofrepparttar 135504 Picts and Scots. Followingrepparttar 135505 demise ofrepparttar 135506 Roman Empire in Britain duringrepparttar 135507 5th century, Lancaster fell into decline and it was not untilrepparttar 135508 Norman Conquest thatrepparttar 135509 present castle took on a more solid structure withrepparttar 135510 building ofrepparttar 135511 Norman Keep by Roger of Poitou.

Lancaster led a very turbulent and colourful life having a succession of owners. A total of 265 executions took place within her walls, as well asrepparttar 135512 infamous Pendle witch trials of 1612. A total of ten people were tried and convicted of witchcraft. If you were unlucky enough to be imprisoned within her walls fromrepparttar 135513 later half ofrepparttar 135514 18th century onwards, you could have found yourself transported torepparttar 135515 new found colony of Australia.

In 1399 Richard II seizedrepparttar 135516 castle fromrepparttar 135517 2nd Duke of Lancaster, John of Gaunt after his death and claimedrepparttar 135518 castle inrepparttar 135519 name ofrepparttar 135520 monarchy. When Henry IV ousted Richard inrepparttar 135521 same year,repparttar 135522 castle became part ofrepparttar 135523 Duchy of Lancaster where it has remained ever since.

Henry undertook a massive rebuilding program which sawrepparttar 135524 addition of a twin-towered gatehouse. The gatehouse consisted of two 20 metre high towers consisting of several floors withrepparttar 135525 top two being dived into a number of rooms. A Well Tower (which became know asrepparttar 135526 Witch’s Tower) was built duringrepparttar 135527 14th century and consisted of two deep wells and several underground dungeons. These dungeons went on to house people accused of witchcraft prior to their trial at Lancaster Castle duringrepparttar 135528 reign of King James I inrepparttar 135529 16th century.
