Bitchdaughter Tower

Bitchdaughter Tower

Geoffrey H.
This is probably the `Biche Doughter' tower which was in poor repair in 1566, and presumably identical with the King's gaol called `le bydoutre' repaired in 1451-2. It was probably rebuilt in 1645. It is oddly placed to the west of the wall angle, with a short length of wall linking it with the return of the main south-east stretch, but it already had that form in 1682. The tower is an irregular circle with the arcs of the curves inside and outside the walls struck from different centres.
