About

Come along and discover what life was like in the 17th century at Powderham Castle.

Step back in time to the 17th Century when Powderham Castle played a crucial role in the English Civil War. Wardour Garrison, the premier 17th century living history group as seen on TV, will bring the grounds to life with an encampment portraying trades, crafts and life as it was in 17th century England. Join the re-enactors who will demonstrate cooking over an open fire, lacemaking, spinning, and other activities. Watch the garrison put through their paces with weapon demonstrations, of musket, canon, pike bill and sword. Join the Apothecary for a Plant Walk identifying plants and herbs used in the 17th Century for medicines and other uses.

Including skirmishes, children's sword school, weapon demonstrations, target practice and more!
