An imposing castle

Back in 2010, I was lucky enough to go to Bodiam Castle.  To be fair, it is somewhere I had wanted to visit for many years, since I first got a book on castles as a child.  To a young person, it’s an inspiring castle which conjures up images of chivalry, with knights on horseback jousting on the fields nearby, while squires and damsels stroll beneath the trees.  I think it’s the combination of the wide wind-stippled moat, the long “drawbridge”, and the imposing bulk of the castle itself.  If I was asked to draw an English castle from my imagination, I think it would look a lot like Bodiam.
