Cowdray Castle ruins, Midhurst
The magnificent gatehouse and West front was photographed by poking the camera through the railings bordering the footpath to the public entrance. Cowdray Castle is a most impressive ruin. It was built in 1520 and was subsequently partly destroyed by fire in 1793. Workmen burning charcoal in an upper gallery failed to put out their flames at the end of the day. Regular Royal visitors included Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Other famous visitors to Cowdray included Edward VI and the King of Spain.
