Canterbury Castle of Kent

Interior view of Rochester Castle

Canterbury Castle is a Norman Castle in CanterburyKentEngland (grid referenceTR14545743).[ It is five minutes walk from Canterbury East Station and main bus station around City Wall.

A wooden motte and bailey castle was erected in 1066 – its motte may be the mound which is still visible in the Dane John gardens near the stone castle (which may in turn be a Roman burial mound), with Dane John deriving from donjon.

Canterbury Castle was one of the three original Royal castles of Kent (the other two beingRochester Castle and Dover Castle). They were all built soon after the Battle of Hastings, on the main Roman road from Dover to London. This was the route taken by William the Conqueror in October 1066, and they were built originally as motte-and-bailey castles to guard this important route

  11. There are tons of good tv shows to choose from to say it’s the best. No matter what is said though, there is no doubt that this show ranks #1 of all of them. Yes, there are shows that are a bit older but this one still has charm. There is comedy, humor, and a little darkness, easily moving it up to the top. They just don’t make them like this nowadays.

  28. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
