The Hastings castle

Today we visited the Hastings castle. The castle was on top of the hill at Hastings. It was built in the 11th century by William the conqueror. This castle was built after the 1066 war. The French invaded England and killed Harold the king.
As the years went by the hill got worn away and the castle fell to ruin. There was a huge storm which made half the castle fall into the sea.
King Henry the 8th made a law so that the church had to be ripped down. Now all that is left is this...

its still cool
