Hastings castle

This castle was built in the 11th century.
This is where the battle of Hastings started. William the Conquerer landed here with all of his troops and then marched to Battle where the actual battle took place.

The castle used to have a church and a chapter house.King Henry the 8th ordered all of the churches riches to be given to the king, so this was the end of the churches in most places.

William the Conquerer built it to celebrate his victory of the battle of Hastings. This was in 1066.
