Deer Park wall at Berry Pomeroy Castle, Berry Pomeroy - South Hams

Medieval deer park wall, extended in the C16. Neglected, heavily overgrown with ivy and partially collapsed in places. The Estate has prepared a condition survey in order to understand and monitor mechanisms of decay and to prioritise repairs. A pilot repair scheme was undertaken in 2013/14 with funding from Natural England. This was extended in 2014/15 and a team from the estate continues to make repairs for a period every summer. There have been some further areas of collapse and as of 2018 significant work is still required to stabilise other sections, but progress is being made.
