Bodiam Castle was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, a former knight of Edward III, with the permission of Richard II, ostensibly to defend the area against French invasion during the Hundred Years War.
Its structure, details and situation in an artificial watery landscape indicate that display was an important aspect of the castle's design as well as defence. The castle is protected as a Grade I listed building and is open to the public.
