Corfe Castle by Matthew Ernst

The dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle stand on a natural hill guarding the principal route through the Purbeck Hills. The castle guards the gap between the south of Purbeck, where Purbeck marble was once quarried, and the rest of England. Nothing could pass in or out without going past the Castle. It may have been a defensive site even in Roman times and Corfe Castle certainly has had a colourful history. The first castle buildings would have been built of wood. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/corfe-castle (Corfe Castle, England)
