Bodiam Castle
Bodiam Castle
Bodiam Castle was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dallingridge using the excuse of fortifying his manor house against possible invasion by the French to construct a personal castle. Although probably never intended to withstand a siege it was threatened during the Wars of the Roses in 1483, but surrendered and fully besieged during the civil war after which much of the interior was gutted to leave just a shell. Restoration works were carried out by Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India, who gave the castle to the National Trust in 1926. Refer to picture TQ7825 : Bodiam Castle Moat for a different view.
