Castle Rising

Built in 1138 by William d'Albini Earl of Sussex, for his new wife, the widow of Henry I, this doughty castle originally comprised of a substantial keep surrounded by huge earthworks. Today all that stands are the Norman gatehouse and an impressively decorated gallery and chapel. Queen Isabella was exiled to Castle Rising in 1331 after scheming with the feckless Roger Mortimer to murder her husband Edward II.
