Hastings Castle is a keep and bailey castle ruin situated in the town of Hastings in the historic county of East Sussex. It overlooks the English Channel, into which large parts of the castle have sadly fallen over the years.
The construction of Hastings Castle is so old it is even depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry, showing the raising of an earthen motte topped by a wooden palisade.
Immediately after landing in England in 1066, William of Normandy ordered three fortifications to be built, Pevensey Castle in September 1066. This castle used the stone from the Roman Saxon Shore fort of Anderitum in Hastings and Dover. Hastings Castle was originally built as a motte and bailey castle near the sea. Later that year, the famous Battle of Hastings took place some eight miles to the north of Hastings Castle, in which William was victorious. In 1070, William issued orders for the castle to be rebuilt in stone, along with the St Marys Chapel.
The Count of Eu held the castle for most of the Norman period, beginning with Robert, but King John ordered that the castle be destroyed to prevent it falling into the hands of the Dauphin Louis. In 1220, Henry III made the castle even more secure from attack.
In time however the house of Eu forfeited control of Hastings Castle, when the family heir William made the decision to keep his French assets over the English ones, and was denied the right to his inheritance. In 1242, Henry III bestowed rule of the castle and its lands to his wifes uncle, Peter of Savoy, who then governed the estate until his death.
In 1287, violent storms thrashed the East Sussex coast for many months and the soft sandstone cliffs eventually succumbed to the elements. The natural bombardment from the elements proved too much for the cliffs and large sections of the face fell into the sea along with parts of the castle.
In both 1339 and 1377, the East Sussex town was attacked by the French leaving many burnt buildings which included homes. Throughout the next century erosion was unchecked and gradually more of the castle was lost to the sea.
The site was purchased by Thomas Pelham on 23 June 1591. After the purchase, the site was purchased by the Pelham family and used for farming until the ruins had become so overgrown they were lost from memory.
In 1824, the then owner the Earl of Chichester commissioned some archaeological investigations of the ruin. As a result of these, the chapel floor and parts of the chancel arch and walls were re constructed out of blocks found lying on the ground.
During World War II, the iconic East Sussex castle received more damage as Hastings was a target for bombing raids. In 1951, the Hastings Corporation purchased the site and converted it into a tourist attraction.
