We visited Deal Castle during August 2000.  The castle was built in the 1500s under the orders of Henry 8th.  It was one of several improvements to coastal defences that were made during this period on the South coast of England.  The castle is in a  remarkable state of condition, and is under the guardianship of English Heritage.

Pictured in front of the castle are back row Laura, David, Joanna (cousin).  Front row Richard and Robert.
