A QUADRANGUL­AR CASTLE

-

Bodiam was built on a quadrangul­ar design with an outer curtain wall, roughly square shaped, surroundin­g an inner courtyard. Each entrance had a square tower, circular on the corners, and square in the middle of each wall. There would have been drawbridge­s between the barbican and the access bridge to the island, and another at the rear of the castle at its postern gate.
