Lewes Castle

Lewes Castle © 2011 Mufidah Kassalias

I’ve lived in Lewes for almost 17 years — the longest span of time for me anywhere — yet I’ve only visited Lewes Castle on a couple of occasions, one of which was earlier this year on a gorgeous Spring day in May when Sean and I went with our dear 92-year-old friend. Martin’s a dapper chap, always dressed in a jacket and tie, and sporting a seasonally appropriate hat. Since I also took a few pictures of Martin that day I’ll have a look for one to post here tomorrow.

My camera settings for this image were an aperture of f/13, shutter speed 1/125 and ISO 100. And for some background info on Lewes Castle visit the Heritage Trail site.

  1. Oh, I remember visiting some of those old castles when I was in the UK too many years ago. It was so much fun. :) Thanks for sharing this photo. Love the textures of the castle and the trees. :) And looking forward to a photo or two of Martin. :)

    • Yes there are many of old castles in the UK. My mother took me to a lot of places like this when I was a child and I never quite understood what was so interesting about them, but I guess I look at them in a broader context now, both historically and visually. Photo of Martin is being chosen now … :-)

    • Thanks David. One of the really good things about Lewes Castle is the great views in all directions over the town — being built on a mound as a defence strategy makes it the highest central vantage point.
