View of the old castle and Roman arch at Canterbury. Canterbury Castle is one of the three original royal castles of Kent. The massive stone keep was built during the reign of Henry I. For a considerable span of its history the castle was used as a jail for the county of Kent. In 1770 and 1792 much of the outer bailey walls were demolished, but the upper walls of the keep survived until the early 19th century.
