Castle Design: The Bodiam Castle

The Bodiam Castle is a 14th-century moated castle in East Sussex, England. Built in 1385 by Edward Dalyngrigge, this castle is constructed of Sandstone. The current condition of the castle is ruins and it’s owned by the National Trust. (ABOVE) This is the type of castle I have always envisioned. From the turrets to the small windows, I absolutely love this castle. (BELOW 1) A closer look of the Sandstone shows its incredible age and detail. I love the wood door and unique engravings above it. (BELOW 2) As you can see the interior of the castle is hollow. I would love to de-construct this castle and bring it overseas to the USA and then use the materials to build a home for myself. (BELOW 3) An aerial view of the castle shows that it is built on a fresh site surrounded by a water-filled moat. What fascinates you about the Bodiam Castle?
