We have visited Hastings Castle many years ago in fact I have a Photo of my Wife (in a Bikini) hanging on to the flag pole taken in 1969 . So on our recent trip to the UK we had to visit again. This is an English Heritage Site so we used our OS Visitor passes again . English Heritage do a wonderful job in maintaining around 400 sites around England in very difficult circumstances considering the age of the sites , this one being well over 900 years old and considering that around 2 thirds of it has fallen into the sea over the years , what is left is still well worth a visit . This castle was originally built by William of Normandy (The Conqueror) and was started in 1066 and rebuilt in stone in 1070 .
And although a ruin is definitely worth a visit .
I took another Photo of my Wife on the Flagpole .
