Bodiam Castle, East Sussex by Matthew Champion

Bodiam Castle, East Sussex

Originally built in the 1390s for Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, Bodiam Castle is now in the care of the National Trust. This image was taken whilst I was undertaking a night time survey of the castles numerous graffiti inscriptions for the Trust. The 'snap' was taken after I had to return to my car to collect further equipment. On coming back I realised I had forgotten to turn off the survey lights, which just illuminated the castle gateway in the growing dark. I took the picture and thought no more about it.
