HASTINGS.—Hastings Castle stands on the brink of the cliff, and presents the most striking view to be found in Sussex. Its principal entrance was necessarily on the land side, where the portcullis groove and the hooks for the gate-hinges may yet be examined. The Castle area occupied about an acre and a quarter. The south side was 400ft. long, and the east side 300ft., with a fosse and a massive wall, strengthened by three semi-circular towers whose fragments are still interesting. The north-west side was a little more than 400ft. in length. To the west, both a square and a circular tower are still standing, also a doorway which formerly opened into the Royal Chapel of St. Mary.
