It was owned from 1238 by Simon de Montfort, who led the baronial rebellion against Henry IIII and was killed at the Battle of Evesham in 1265. Henry III then gave the castle to his half-brother William de Valence, as a reward for his loyalty during the rebellion. There are dramatic, panoramic views from the castle over East Sussex and the Weald of Kent.
