Castle Drogo in Devon

This page is about Castle Drogo near Exeter, Devon

Castle Drogo was the last Castle to be built in England. It is set above the Teign Gorge and has beautiful views of Dartmoor. The castle was given to the National Trust in 1974. The Castle was built for Julas Drewe between 1910 and 1930 (Julias Drew was a millionaire, who made hes riches from his chain of stores). Recent works include restoration of the Chapel roof. Unfortunatley there is an ongoing damp problem in the castle, partly due to its construction, but mainly due to its location where it is susceptible to extreme weather conditions. The castle is the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens, considered one of Englands top architects. It has a garden which sits some 900 feet garden and is the highest national trust garden. The castle is just 300 metres from Dartmoor National Park.
