Looking Up – Bodiam Castle

Just by looking up you can find a totally different perspective of architecture. Take for instance our little trip to Bodiam Castle in Kent. As much as I enjoyed the ride… I was finding the trip exhausting… two trips in 3 days, perhaps was a bit much, I thought! But alas, no it was the antibiotics that were making me feel so rough and ill.

Bodiam Castle, owned and maintained by the National Trust, is set in the countryside of East Sussex and is one of the most splendid castles I’ve ever seen.

From every angle, it holds a certain charm that transports you back in time. But it’s looking up that truly captures the magic of this medieval masterpiece.

As you gaze up at the towering walls and intricate stonework, it’s hard not to feel awed by the sheer scale of the castle. The towers stretch high into the sky, as if reaching out to touch the clouds. And the intricate carvings and delicate details that adorn the walls are a testament to the skilled craftsmen who built this wonder.

But it’s not just the physical beauty of the castle that makes looking up so special. It’s the sense of awe and wonder that comes with it. As you stand at the foot of this towering monument, you can’t help but feel a sense of humility, realizing just how small you are in the grand scheme of things.

And yet, at the same time, there’s a sense of empowerment that comes with it. Knowing that such incredible feats of engineering and design are possible, and that we as humans are capable of achieving such greatness, is truly inspiring.

So next time you find yourself visiting a historic landmark, take a moment to look up. You never know what kind of magic you might discover.
