Set in the heart of an historic landscape, with spiral staircases, battlements and a portcullis, 14th century Bodiam Castle is one of Britain’s most picturesque and romantic ancient monuments. Windows where arrows were once fired, a tower that was once a look-out and ruins that were once walked upon by knights; this is a place where you can relive your childhood memories and let your imagination run riot.
In the impressive gatehouse is the castle’s original wooden portcullis, an extremely rare example of its kind. Enough of the interior ruins survive to give an impression of castle life and gruesome and surprising tales can often be heard from our miller’s wife, forester and other colourful characters from the past.
This isn’t HDR – Those who know me are aware that I have little patience for that kind of stuff, also there’s the fact that I generally have children hanging on to my leg when I’m taking photographs! So, a couple of minutes in Lightroom, take down the saturation, up the clarity.
