Bodiam Castle
In 1385 Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, a royal councillor and veteran of the wars with France, received permission from the King to build a castle on his manor at Bodiam. The building that he raised, although now a ruin, is one of the most celebrated castles in England.

Set in open parkland, the castle is approached through a series of medieval features including ornamental water-gardens and the millpond for Dalyngrigge's original estate, along with the more modern Second World War PillBox. The Castle itself, set in a picturesque spring fed moat, appears to be almost complete from the outside. Once entered across the modern bridge, the extent of the damage incurred during the 17th century becomes evident. However it is easy to imagine how this once grand home would have been set out, with its chapel, Sir Edward's family quarters, the Great Hall and Great Kitchen. An investigation of the towers, past the many garderobes (toilets), will give access to the roof and the wonderful views of the Rother Valley.
