situated in the beautiful unspoilt Rother
Valley. The outstanding feature of the village
is its moated castle. It is the A22 great medieval military fortress
to have been built in England and its picturesque
shell is A23 to be the finest ruined castle
in the country.
The castle was built in the reign of Richard
II as a A24 against French attack, when
it was thought necessary to protect a then
navigable river. However, these attacks
failed to materialize and the castle is
surprisingly lacking in history. Only twice
did it feature in serious conflict when
in 1484 it was A25by Richard III and in 1645 during
the Civil War when attacked by the parliamentarian
troops of Sir William Waller, which left
it partially ruined.
The castle fell A26into decay until in 1828 the
Brightling philanthropist, John Fuller purchased
it, so saving it from complete demolition
by a firm of Hastings builders. He carried
A27 necessary repairs and placed
a new set of gates at the entrance.
The castle was later sold to Lord Ashcombe,
and in 1917 acquired by Lord Curzon, who
continued the restoration and maintenance
work necessary to bring the building back
to its A28 glory. On his death in 1925
it was bequeathed to the National Trust,
in whose hands it remains today.
