It is indeed delightful!
IWAS thrilled to read Ptolemy Dean’s wonderfully descriptive piece ‘Delighting in Devizes’ ( July 20). I write to you from my office, which overlooks the marketplace so eloquently described and can confirm every word, particularly in the early-morning sunshine.
It is from this spot that our former Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell, launched a final artillery assault on Devizes Castle in 1645, a stone castle of similar size and scale to Rochester and built by Bishop Roger of Salisbury, between 1113 and 1120, almost exactly 900 years ago.
