Castles & Fortifications of East & West Sussex
Castles in Sussex

With its long coastline and closeness to the continent, Sussex has for many centuries played a strategic role in Britain's defenses. Almost every age has added to these fortifications and examples from the Norman Conquest to the Second World War can be seen.

Some of these fortifications have been lost to time and destruction but some have been saved and are even being restored to give visitors a feel of what it was like to live in these once austere and formidable places in English History.
