Pevensey Castle

Beginning in the 4th century as a Roman Saxon shore fort. Pevensey is where the Norman conquest landed in 1066 and they built this castle over the next hundred years. The sea is now several miles away, it once came right up to the castle, which had its own harbour.

One of my favourite subjects, I love exploring these places, hard to believe the sea was lapping near its walls smile
John Prior: Many thanks Linda.
Another fine shot John, it looks a very distinctive ruin.
John Prior: I thought so also Brian. We got there in the evening, more by chance than design, I thought it was impressive. Thanks for visit.

A fine picture of this old castle. I like the slits where I assume archers could use to shoot from while be relatively safe. It's hard to imagine that the sea and castle have separated so much.
John Prior: Thank you Don. Yes, one imagines that land is always being swallowed by the sea, but it seems to occasionally give some back.
A castle full of history John, one I have only seen in passing. Maybe one day I'll have a proper look.
John Prior: Thank you Les.

A fine image!
I LOVE ruins in such beautiful landscapes; maybe it is just me but I think it really adds to the overall ... allure.
John Prior: Thank you. I totally agree with you.
