The idea of this trip was to use Meerkat and stream so that everyone had the opportunity to see this magnificent structure. Sadly the are has no signal whatsoever and as soon as we arrived we knew the stream was a none starter.
The drive to the castle was about two hours but again really enjoyable as the country roads in places were amazing. West Sussex is a stunning county in the south of England with many beautiful areas to enjoy, but this castle, or what remains of it, is stunning.
The disabled facilities were rather good but limited. The car park had about 5 spaces for the disabled and they other a golf like car to transport you up to the caste itself. I chose not to do that as I wanted to take photographs, and we walked, slowly but we got there in time.
Once there you are told there are no bathroom facilities until you return to the car park area. Because the area is national Trust they are not allowed to dig into the area. But with a road just behind the cafe that is there I could not see why they have not placed Ports Loos there?
Anyway, the walking around the castle for me was tough going, many narrow pathways and stairs within the grounds. But the pain was well worth it as this was a beautiful place to visit.
They have people dressed in clothing from the 14th Century and the talk about the times, farming, family life etc. But for me the main enjoyment of the trip was the actual building and its stunning surrounding.
Some more pictures for you to enjoy.
