Inside Eynsford Castle
Eynsford Castle was built on the site of an earlier Saxon building. The curtain wall was built between 1085 and 1087, probably by William de Eynsford, a knight and sheriff of Kent. The defences were further strengthened around 1100 and a hall and other buildings were erected inside the castle walls. In 1261, Eynsford Castle and estate were divided between the Kirkeby and Criol families. This led to disputes which culminated in 1312 when Nicholas de Criol and his supporters broke in and vandalised Eynsford Castle. The castle was abandoned soon after.

This view looks towards the inside of the curtain wall where the arch marks the site of a former garderobe. See LinkExternal link for more information about Eynsford Castle.
