Giclée travel poster of the ruins of Hadleigh Castle, overlooking the Thames Estuary near Hadleigh, Essex. Built in 1215, Hadleigh Castle was a favourite of Edward II and Edward III, both of whom stayed there on multiple occassions; they expanded the castle with new royal residences, repaired the walls, and installed new towers, among other rennovations. Hadleigh Castle was, by the late 1300s, one of the grandest castles in medieval England, but began to pass out of use in the following centuries, and was partially dismantled in the 1550s. Today, all that remains of the once-grand castle are striking ruins, a Grade I listed building under teh stewardship of English Heritage.

Hadleigh Castle is just a short distance south of Hadleigh itself, which is a town of almost 20,000 people in the south of Essex. The local government district of the area, Castle Point, takes its name from Hadlieegh Castle, and is known for its views out over the Thames Estuary, which runs along the Essex coast in the south of the county.
