Artist's Description

Lulworth Castle

Number of views as of 23rd August 2017 = 690.

Lulworth Castle (East Lulworth, Dorset, England) was built in the early 17th century as a hunting lodge by Thomas Howard, 3rd Viscount Howard of Bindon.

In 1641 it was purchased by Humphrey Weld as part of the Lulworth Estate for the princely sum (in those days) of £30,000, and the Estate has remained in the hands of the Weld family to this day.

A serious fire in 1929 raged for 3 days and completely destroyed the interior of the Castle along with the roof, and the Castle lay in ruin for over 60 years.

In the 1990s, however, thanks to funding from English Heritage, the stonework was restored, the Castle re-roofed, and the building is now open to the public on most days except for Saturdays.

A steel staircase has been built inside one of the castle’s 4 towers (front left in photo) allowing access to a small rooftop viewing area.

The Castle grounds include two churches, one Catholic, the other Church of England.

Date: 6th May 2013.
