Bramber Castle and its History

Bramber Castle is situated at the west of the tiny village of Bramber, near Steyning in West Sussex. Built by William De Braose around 1171, it was the administrative centre for the rape of Bramber.

I walk around the remains of the bailey and climb the motte, and later plunge into the defensive ditch that encircles it.
