Corfe Castle Castles
Corfe Castle, Dorset
Corfe Castle is a thousand-year-old castle rising above the Isle of Purbeck
One of Britain's most majestic ruins, the castle controlled the gateway through the Purbeck Hills and has been an important stronghold since the time of William the Conqueror. Defended during the Civil War by the ardent and virtuous Lady Bankes, the castle fell to treachery from within, and was substantially destroyed afterwards by the Parliamentarians. Many fine Norman and Early English features remain.
