Glottenham Castle
TQ 726-221 Sussex England

Glottenham Castle Glottenham Castle is a late 13th century fortified manor house, founded by Robert de Etchingham. Standing on a hill-top, the large spring-fed moated rectangular platform was encased by a stone curtain wall, with a western gatehouse. The wide moat which is now dry except for the east arm, is partly rock-cut and there is an outer retaining bank on the east side. In the late 14th century, the castle was a little used secondary residence and pottery evidence suggests that the gatehouse was abandoned by the late 16th or early 17th century. 5 miles north-east is Bodiam Castle and 5 miles south is Battle Abbey.
