Castle Bagging


We Developed the concept of Castle Bagging a few years ago whilst visiting friends. We had booked a week in a villa just outside Carcassonne in the south of France. The walled city is in the area of the Cathar region, which I still know very little about, but we did know there some Cathar castles, so two of my friends and I decided to see how many we could visit in one day. As it happen, we visited three and a bit. The bit was Montsegur, the most spectacular of them, a bit because we only saw it, not actually visiting it. EWe ran out of time.

So in my terms, to bag a castle is to visit it. Not long back, we bagged Arundel Castle, quite spectacular and well worth a visit. But today is about Lewes Castle. Nowhere near as big as Arundel, but very interesting. Built by William De Warrene in the 11th century.

As we left Brighton this morning, we decided we would bag it, and a very educational visit it was as well.
We are starting to get very near where William the Conquerer had his initial engagements with the English, and the Norman influence on the area is huge.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
