Castle Facts:

Location: Vernon, in the Eure departement of France (Haute-Normandie Region).
Built: 1123.
Condition: In good condition.
Ownership / Access: Privately owned.
Notes: Tour des archives is the last vestige of an ancient castle that stands in the town of Vernon in the department of Eure and Normandy region. The tower is the subject of a classification as historical monuments by the 1840 list. La tour des Archives est située dans le département français de l'Eure sur la commune de Vernon.The primitive construction of a square tower dates back to 1123, built by Henry Beauclerc, youngest son of William the Conqueror. Thereafter, it was replaced by a round tower under Philip Augustus. It is typical of military buildings built by the king of France. It is 22 m high.It is architecturally close to the Joan of Arc Tower in Rouen built soon after.In Vernon, the Royal Engineers adapted themselves an existing enclosure oval track, they "retendent" by rectilinear curtains and flankings towers with the inevitable turn independent mistress. This obviously reuses older items.It is architecturally close to the Joan of Arc Tower in Rouen built soon after.In Vernon, the Royal Engineers adapted themselves an existing enclosure oval track, they "retendent" by rectilinear curtains and flankings towers with the inevitable turn independent mistress.
