View of the keep and entrance of Restormel Castle. Restormel Castle is a well preserved example of a circular shell keep, a rare type of fortification built during a short period in the 12th and early 13th centuries. Such castles were built by converting a wooden motte and bailey castle through replacing the external palisade with a stone wall and filling the internal bailey with domestic stone buildings, clustered around the the inside of the wall to form a defensive bailey. The buildings are curved to fit into the shell keep. Photographer: Charles Woolf
