During the Civil War (1642-48) the Arundell’s were loyal to the king. In May 1643 the castle was attacked by Sir Edward Hungerford, a Parliamentarian commander, and after a short siege the castle was surrendered to him. In December, Henry Arundell led a Royalist counter-siege. Whether by design or misfortune, gunpowder mines laid in a drainage tunnel beneath the castle produced an explosion powerful enough to cause a large part of the castle to collapse. The damage was deemed as beyond repair and the ruined castle would later become the focal point of the landscaped grounds of the new house built at Wardour.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
