Bishop’s Castle is a small market town in South Shropshire. An area of outstanding natural beauty; it is much loved by visitors who want to experience unspoilt countryside dappled with small villages and hamlets. It’s a place to get away to and enjoy the peace and tranquility that is rapidly departing from other parts of England. There are no motorways and few traffic lights; you’ll be deafened by the silence broken only by the calls of circling buzzards. Bishops Castle has some excellent accommodation both in and out of town. The history of Bishop’s Castle begins in the eighth century when Offa, the powerful King of Mercia, who built the Dyke to defend his Kingdom, murdered Ethelburt, the young King of East Anglia. This was a terrible and treacherous act on the part of a Christian King respected, until this point, for his faith, wisdom and judgement. There are several accounts of the affair, but they all contain the same features. The head was separated from the body and the remains tossed into marshy ground by the river Lugg. From here they were later removed by Offa’s Chamberlain and taken to a place called Fernley, which later became Hereford. Here the remains were properly buried, the tomb becoming a sanctuary and a place of miracles.
The manor extended from the Saxon settlement at Lydbury to the borders of Wales and it included the land on which the future, Norman Bishops of Hereford would build a castle and town. The Lydbury manor was situated in a troubled area, vulnerable to attack from the Welsh. After the Norman Conquest in 1066, the Bishops of Hereford were appointed Marcher Lords responsible for the defence of the Marches or frontiers between Wales and England. Much of the Welsh Marches frontier was secured by Roger Montgomery and his brood of fighting sons. As they thrust their way into Wales, they were keen to secure the borders behind them. A series of motte and bailey castles were built and it seems likely that the first castle built in the vicinity of the present town was among them. In the Domesday survey of 1086, no castle for the manor of Lydbury is mentioned but like many other minor motte and bailey castles, it may not have been listed. The Lay Subsidy Rolls for this period, however, do show that a castle connected with the manor of Lydbury was under the charge of the Bishop’s of Hereford in 1087/88. This castle would have been of the motte and bailey type, and it was built on the hill at the top of the present town. The castle was sited to guard the nascent town and its church. From this vantage point, the Bishop’s castle could guard not only the group of dwellings that began to huddle beneath it, but also the “new” town that began to edge its way down the hill towards the church. By 1127, a “plantation” town seems to have been established on this line down the hill from the castle to the church on exactly the same line followed by High Street and Church Street today.
To secure settlement and foster trade on the troubled border lands, the Normans created a series of these new, “plantation” towns, some more successful and enduring than others. They were protected by castles, sometimes by walls, but the most important incentive given to settlement was land. The towns were laid out in burgage plots along the main street or highway and the settlers brave enough to take up residence were granted the privilege of being burgesses and free men with rights to both their land and houses. This was no small incentive at a time when everyone not lucky enough to be born into the privileged’. nobleman class was the property of the nearest Lord of the Manor.
