St Briavels Castle is a moated Norman castle at St Briaves in Gloucestershire. The castle is noted for its huge Edwardian gatehouse that guards the entrance. St Briavels Castle was originally built between 1075 and 1129 as a royal administrative centre for the Forest of Dean. During the 13th century the castle became first a favourite hunting lodge of King John, and then the primary centre in England for the manufacture of quarrels, crossbow arrows, large numbers of which were required for crossbows in medieval warfare. The Buck brothers, Samuel and Nathaniel, are best known for their large format panoramas of major British cities published earlier in the eighteenth century. This fine engraving was published in the smaller format 'Antiquities, or venerable remains of above four hundred castles, monasteries, palaces etc. in England and Wales', published in London between 1726 and 1752.
