The Castle on the Hill…

Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle, Dorset

Not the traditional view of Corfe Castle, but one I think, that illustrates its strong strategic location. 

Built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror.  He chose the location well.  High on a hill, easy to defend on all sides. It also provided great unobstructed views over the Isle of Purbeck, to the coast and inland over the Dorset marshes and countryside.

These extensive ruins stand above the town of Corfe.  Both Town and Castle are a must to be included on any tour of Dorset.

One day we will be able to tour again….  until then…

Please Remember to ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
