Bedford Burrow & Other Curious Stuff

Strange little town, strange little site.

Corfe Castle

Driving down to Swanage you suddenly come across the impressive ruins of Corfe Castle which dominate the route. There is no better place to build a castle.

Around 1000 years old, the castle played its part in history. At the end of the English civil war Cromwell’s forces set about destroying the place and blew the bloody doors off.

The village has many old buildings and has a station on the restored steam railway line that runs down to Swanage .
