It is being destroyed by water penetration. High on Dartmoor, it is exposed to strong and almost constant winds and rain, while flaws in the original construction mean that today significant amounts of water penetrate through the roof, windows and pointing.
This has resulted in multiple serious leaks, which can result in water running down the walls and staircases.
Each walk around the castle reveals further damage; damp patches and cracks which bring the threat of structural failure of the ceilings or walls.
Water penetration is destroying Castle Drogo; each raindrop is a time bomb.
