Artist's Description

A street of quaint Cottages at Corfe Castle in Dorset
Corfe is overlooked by the outstanding ruins of its castle perched above the village on a hill in a gap in the chalk ridge. The castle, built in 1086, was one of the country’s great strongholds and was strongly defended by the wife of its owner during the civil war, before being betrayed by one inside it. For her heroic efforts the parliamentarians allowed her to go free but destroyed the castle to stop it being used in the future. Some of the ruined stone was used in the building of the village and the houses are built of local stone making the village one of the most attractive in Dorset.
