  • From church car park, path through wood and a hop over fence into trig field, which is bordered by the bypass. Pevensey Castle is not far away.Built around 290 AD during Roman occupation on a then peninsula sticking out into a lagoon which has since silted up, The castle then fell into ruin but was reoccupied in 1066 by the Normans, who it is claimed landed nearby (now named Normans Bay).A stone keep and fortification was built within the Roman walls and faced several sieges. Although its garrison was twice starved into surrender, it was never successfully stormed. The castle was occupied more or less continuously until the 16th century and then used as a garrison during WWII with machine-gun posts built into the Roman and Norman walls to control the flat land around Pevensey and guard against the threat of a German invasion. They were left in place after the war and can still be seen today
