Arundel, Castle And Town From The Air c.1955

More about this scene


Caption for Arundel, Castle and Town from the Air c1955: Like Lewes, Arundel was established by a Norman baron, this time Roger de Montgomery, to guard a river gap in the South Downs, in this case the Arun. Halfway along the castle, Henry II's shell keep on the Norman Motte or mound divides the two baileys, the right-hand one filled with the massive Victorian rebuild. The aerial view brings out the medieval town plan well.

Memories of Arundel


This is my Grandfather Joseph Smith and my two Great Aunts, Kathleen and Josephine. He was about 12 in this picture. They lived yards from where this was taken in the lodge at Arundel Park gates. My great Grandfather, William, was a groom to the then Duke of Norfolk (Henry) and Great Granmother, Kate, was a domestic. I have spent many happy times in Arundel and continue to visit.
