Here’s a little bit more information about this historic seaside town…
Pevensey is a village and civil parish in the Wealden district of East Sussex. The main village is located 5 miles north-east of Eastbourne, one mile inland from Pevensey Bay. The settlement of Pevensey Bay forms part of the parish and is the place William the Conqueror made the landing in his invasion of England in 1066 after crossing the English Channel from Normandy, France.
Pevensey Bay lies behind and on the shingle beach close to Pevensey itself. Although it’s small, it is nevertheless a seaside resort in miniature and has many of the facilities of larger seaside resorts elsewhere. It is a clay bay which makes it susceptible to erosion over time.
Pevensey Castle is in the upkeep of English Heritage. It dates back to the beginning in the 4th century and is one of the last and strongest of the Roman ‘Saxon Shore’ forts, two-thirds of whose towered walls still stand. It was the landing place of William the Conqueror’s army in 1066. During the century after the Conquest a full-scale Norman castle, with a great square keep and a powerful gatehouse, was built within one corner of the fort. In the 1250s the towered bailey wall was constructed, and soon put to the test during the great siege of 1264.
