Gone to the beach. Back never. 🌊
A Sunday morning walk around Pevensey Castle this morning. Pevensey in East Sussex played a role in some of the most important events in history from the Norman invasion and ‘the Anarchy’ to the Peasants Revolt and the Second World War.
A Roman fort it was built in the 290s, sacked by raiders in 471 and left abandoned for a century, then re-inhabited in the 6th century. The Normans built a castle in the Roman fort and over the next few centuries it was held by Royal favourites. It then again fell into ruin, but was used by soldiers in World War 2, when Sussex prepared for invasion.
Currently the Castle is closed due to the pandemic, but opens again late spring. Check out the English Heritage website for more information:

Love Sheila Bugler and love Dee Doran. Another crime novel set in my local area of Pevensey and Eastbourne. Had to walk all the areas again- amazing for my fitness levels. As always accessible, gripping and a thrilling read. It’s been a good reading week.

On a stroll around my local seaside village today (our hours daily exercise allowance) I saw this. It warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face.
And here is what the letters on the bench said:
