The sign hanging above the Finchdean Road entrance to the Castle Inn, Rowlands Castle, depicts the sizeable ruins from which the village takes its name.

The castle’s towers and battlements are known to have been in good repair in the 12th century when Henry II spent several days there hunting.

The castle is thought to have lasted until the mid-14th century.
