Berkhamsted Castle

1850: Victorian Leisure in the Castle Ruins

In the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, the castle grounds are frequently used for public events. Mechanics’ fetes are held here, and a Grand Bazaar is held to raise funds for the new town hall, designed by Edward Buckton-Lamb. Cricket matches and golf tournaments are played in the bailey, and musket practice also takes place.
