Swanage Railway and Corfe Castle

Our trip on the Swanage Railway took us along its scenic route and included taking in views of Corfe Castle. 

Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle is a ruined castle in the Purbeck Hills.

Over 1,000 years old, it has been a Saxon stronghold, a Norman fortress, a treasury, a military garrison, a royal palace and a family home. The keep was built in the early 12th century for King Henry I, William the Conqueror’s son.

In 1982 Ralph Bankes gave Corfe Castle to the National Trust along with the family’s extensive holdings in Purbeck, their mansion at Kingston Lacy and its adjoining land.
