The castle at Rochester, Kent, UK was built by Archibishop Gundulf as his home when archbishop of the cathedral across the road. It features the highest keep in the UK at 113 feet. The south east corner was undermined by King Johns troops in 1215 when it was held by rebel barons against him. The undermining caused the outer tower to fall and the SE corner of the keep eventually leading to their surrender.
Architectural defensive styles had moved on between the initial build and the seige and therefore when rebuilt it was done with round towers as opposed the the square ones which feature elsewhere at Rochester including on the other three corners of the keep.
