Pevensey Castle aerial
Pevensey is a small town in East Sussex on the southern coastline of England. It began as a fort town built by the Romans to fend off seaborn invaders, and the castle was built in 300 AD, then called Anderitum. Ruins of the Pevensey Castle still stand, a major attraction for the town.

Besides its historic ruins, Pevensey is also known for its location on a ridge overlooking the sea, and for its cattle grazing land.

Also, C.S. Lewis named the Pevensies, a family in his famous Chronicles of Narnia, after this town.
