Location and brief description Bodiam Castle is located
in East sussex, england. It was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dallingridge, a former knight of Edward III, supposedly at the request of Richard II in order to defend the surrounding area from French invasion.

Description
• The castle is completely surrounded by a Moat with approaches from the north and south. • The castle itself is rectangular in shape, being longer in the north-south, and has large round towers at all of the four corners, and a square tower defending the centre of each side. • The castle well is located in one of the corner towers, the chapel in another • Most of the castle interior was destroyed during the English Civil War. • The north side of the castle has the gatehouse and bridge.
