About this piece

2018 – Deal, Kent – UK

Walmer Castle & Gardens in the early spring.

Standing guard over the Kentish coast since Tudor times (1539).  Walmer Castle has developed over the years from a coastal fort into an elegant seaside retreat for politicians, aristocrats and royalty.

Wellington Boots

Walmer Castle has become well known for being the summer retreat of The Duke of Wellington.  A pair of his famous boots still live at the castle on display. Even before his great victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, Wellington was on his way to becoming a fashion icon. By 1813, and the victory at the Battle of Vittoria, Wellington’s fame led others to start wearing this new style of boot. They duly became known as ‘Wellingtons’.
