Pevensey is a castle rising on a very lofty mound, fortified on every side by a most beautiful wall, fenced impregnably by the washing waves of the sea, almost inaccessible owing to the difficulty of the ground.
Here is a sketch of the castle in its heyday and its pitiable current state
It is very sad to see just the remains of this lofty castle...
