Description: In 1385, Edward Dalyngrigge, a future royal adviser and veteran of the wars with France, receipt the permission of the king to build a castle on its manor of Bodiam. The building which it built, although maintaining a ruin, is one of the castles most celebrated in England. It is visited each year by more than 170.000 people, and the images of its walls and turns, peacefully reflected in water of the ditch, appear on all the covers of book. It is not difficult to explain the popularity of Bodiam. Few buildings can compete its splendid configuration, and the outside of the castle represents what each one of us thinks that should resemble a medieval castle. Bodiam can be regarded as the last large English castle.
