Many people who visited the UK and made a joke about their trips. The conclusion of travelling around the country is seeing 3 C: Church, College and Castle. Behind every joke there is some truth. I do visit a few castles recently.
Today I visited Pevensey Castle that is located in East Sussex, near the costal city Eastbourne.
Pevensey Castle is a little different from the castles I have seen before. It has a huge outside walls where I walked two trips and lost my way to come in the castle. From my experience you can see the castle had very good functions to defence invaders. Luckily at last I found my way and started my castle historical trip.
From the picture above you can see how huge the outside walls were. They were the first protection to protect people inside the castle.
Back to 4th century Pevensey Castle was one of the last and strongest of the Roman Saxon Shore forts-two thirds of whose towered walls still stand-it was the landing place of William the Conqueror’s army in 1066. However little is known about Pevensey in the six and a half centuries between the withdrawal of Roman legions from Britain c410 AD and the Norman landings here in 1066.
