The site of a Norman Castle that has been used and developed over a few centuries then left to decline. Now is an open space with the remains of the curtain wall and the gatehouse tower. Some information notices around tell a brief history.

These ruins are quite impressive up close. Shame there always seem to be youngsters hanging around leaving litter, but still worth a visit if in the area. Great views down int the Adur Valley. Good signs giving info about the castle.

Having eaten in the old tollgate, took guests over to the Castle and church as it was a nice sunny evening. Nice walk round (interesting aroma from the teenagers :)) and the church is neat and shows the Norman architectural style well.

Lovely, very old eleventh century ruins beautifully maintained. Not much left of the actual castle but the surroundings are ideal for picnics and viewing the local area. Wonderful old church within walking distance which is well worth a visit.

Scanty ruins of a tower or gatehouse, and walls surrounding the outer bailey with a motte (mound) in the centre. This a very good example of a Norman motte and bailey castle to be seen anywhere.

Nice space. Atmospheric. Though I wouldn't travel very far to visit. Bramber village is quaint with a nice pub, a couple of restaurants and cute houses. Walking in the area is a draw, There are the Downs, the river Arun and all of Sussex to...More
