St. Anns Hill

A castle on St. Anns Hill, at the southern edge of Midhurst, was built soon after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
Built by the de Bohun family, they later moved down to a moated mansion close to the site of todays Cowdray ruins.
Foundations show a tower to the right of the gateway, with a chapel next. Then the main hall with probably a kitchen,
or further outbuildings. It is also highly likely that other buildings constructed of timber, stables etc, stood within the walls, of which no evidence now remains. Around 1300 the castle, which was now empty, was dismantled by the Bishop of Durham,
except for the chapel which was recorded as still standing in 1367.
