Round and about Bodiam Castle Walk


We start this lovely walk from the NT car park at Bodiam Castle. This is reputed to be the finest ruined castle in the country; it is certainly one of the most picturesque, as it stands surrounded by its deep moat. It was built in 1385 and although it is for the most part a ruin, it is possible to climb the spiral staircases in the towers to enjoy impressive views. Bodiam itself is a small village located near the 12th Century Church of St Giles. This lovely scenic walk straddles the Kent and Sussex border and we criss-cross the Sussex Border Path on occasions. Our walk takes us through farmland and woods, along country lanes and enclosed paths lined with beautiful wildflowers. We go through the grounds and pass the ancient manor-house called Great Wigsell, a privately owned property. We finally walk a track that runs parallel with the River Rother.
