Corfe Castle – Postcard Friday


Corfe Castle is a fortification standing above the village of the same name on the Isle of Purbeck in the English county of Dorset. Built by William the Conqueror, the castle dates back to the 11th century and commands a gap in the Purbeck Hills on the route between Wareham and Swanage.

One of my collections of postcards is castles from around the world. I have a ton from Germany but not that many from England. This is one of my favorite postcards.

I love history and I love looking at the ruins of old buildings and imagining the way they would have looked in their prime. It’s amazing to me that there are still buildings this old out in the world. A lot of credit goes to the historical society that maintain these sites. I cannot wait until the day when I get to travel to Europe and explore the old ruins for myself.
