Bodiam Castle

Bodiam castle 10My8 1197

The moated castle that guards the English countryside has been a source of fascination for centuries. A British icon, to be sure! Bodiam Castle is one such example of this architectural wonder; in 1385 Sir Edward Dalyngrigge built it, with permission from Richard II and apparently as protection against invasion during the Hundred Years’ War–though not much was done about French invaders at all due to its location near Robertsbridge. This medieval fortress features no keep but rather various chambers around outer defensive walls and inner courts are topped by crenellations while corners are marked by towers-making it an iconic symbol throughout England still today.
