East Sussex

Having obtained a licence to crenelate from King Richard II in 1385 Sir Edward Dalyngrigge had this castle built to withstand a possible French invasion.

It is of rectangular construction with no keep and has two entrances.

The main entrance had three drawbridges and fortified bridge heads to defend the access across the wide moat which could be described as an artificially created lake.

It has been suggested that Henry Yeveley was the master mason / engineer in charge of this work.
