Bodiam Castle

Bodiam Castle is located in the village of Bodiam in East Sussex.

By 1378, Edward Dalyngrigge owned the manor of Bodiam by marrying into a land-owning family.
He applied to the King for a license to crenellate (build a castle).
Edward received a license from King Richard II that permitted him to refortify his manor house.
Bodiam Castle was built on a new site.

The area surrounding Bodiam Castle was landscaped when the edifice was constructed.
This was done to increase its aesthetic appeal.
The moat of Bodiam Castle had the effect of making the castle appear larger and more impressive by isolating it in its landscape.

The first drawings of Bodiam Castle date from the mid 1700s when it was depicted as a ruin overgrown with ivy.
Ruins and medieval buildings such as Bodiam Castle served as an inspiration for the revival in Gothic architecture and the renovation of old structures.
