Camber Castle (East Sussex)

  • Information

    Camber Castle, Until the late 16th century, most of the low lying ground between Rye and Winchelsea was a shallow harbour, called the Camber, protected from the sea by a long series of shingle banks.

    Henry VIII built a chain of artillery forts along the south coast to protect vulnerable and strategic areas. The existing tower at Camber was incorporated into a new fort built mid 16th century.

    There are monthly guided walks round Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, including the castle.
