Pevensey

locality, Wealden district, administrative county of East Sussex, historic county of Sussex, England. Once an English Channel port, it now lies a mile inland along a narrow waterway; from the 13th century on, silting of the waterway brought about Pevensey's economic decline. The remains of the walls and towers of a Roman fort, Anderida (c. 250), rank among the best extant examples of Roman building in England. After the Norman Conquest (1066) a castle was built within the Roman walls. Pop. (2001) 2,997.
