Hastings Castle

Location: Hastings, UK

You probably shouldn't go to Hastings without a visit to the castle. Must have been a very impressive place in it's day.

To the left of this wall is the north gate. Obviously some repair work has taken place & I'm not sure they would have bothered with the male/female toilet sign in 1066!

This is one of a few approaches to the castle area. These steps are very steep & lead off from a tiny alley at sea level.

Steps leading down into the dungeon. One of two that you can enter.

Doorway to the dungeon

Although only a couple of meters down, it was very cold & damp in the dungeons.

There's a number of small passageways & alcoves. I suspect the naughty people were chained up in the alcoves. There's no handy information boards for me to plagiarise.

Not much remains of the central tower, but if you look closely to the right of the arch way, you can just see the remains of the spiral stairway. Pretty amazing for something built in the 11th century.

Part of the chancel to the west of the north gate

Back down the steps.

This is what remains of one of two towers that were built in the 12th century
