A very personal tour of one of the first medieval castles which I ever visited as a child.

YouTube link

The video includes English Heritage interpretive maps and illustrations. The castle was very badly placed on soft London Clay and has been sliding towards the River Thames since it was completed.

Hadleigh Castle has a drawbridge pit. Towards the end of the video I have also interpreted the workings of an unusual sally port or postern which includes a dog-leg passage way to prevent a battering ram being used on the interior door.
