The castle is formed out of 29 tonnes of sand and features all the elements of a fortification
From the pictures that have been released so far, it can be seen that the fortification has been built with all the required defensive measures which include crenellated outer walls with towers and battlements, and an inner bailey protecting the great tower.
It also features a gatehouse with portcullis and drawbridge, and a ditch and bank around the outside aimed at stopping enemies approaching the walls directly.
Roy Porter, English Heritage Senior Properties Curator and creator of the castle, said: “A castle is surely one of the most awe-inspiring sights but if you look closely, all is not what it seems.
“These amazing structures are a brilliant mix of ages and types, reflecting changing threats and fashions over centuries.
“Part of the fun of visiting them is using a Sherlock-like eye to tease out their secrets!
“By studying hundreds of years of trial and error by the real castle builders our ultimate sandcastle contains everything you’d like to see, with each element showing off castle-building ‘perfection’ from a different era.
The model took five days to make and it has been created to celebrate the start of a weekend dedicated to sandcastle building across all English Heritage castles in England.
Mr Porter added: “I hope people will be inspired to build their very own ultimate sandcastle this summer – and support English Heritage to care for all our real castles so that they can continue to inspire us all for centuries to come.”
The organisation also launched the campaign #LoveCastles on social media to call on members of the public to send pictures of their own sand sculptures.
Jamie Wardley, Sand in Your Eye sand sculptor, commented on his creation saying: “At Sand in Your Eye we’re used to creating great, big sand sculptures all over the world, but this was definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
“To be able to build and sculpt the most perfect castle, not only from a visual point of view but also historically, using Roy’s research into hundreds of years’ worth of castle building history, was a real first for us.”
