East Lulworth is a hamlet in the Purbeck district of Dorset, lying nine miles east of Dorchester, near Lulworth Cove. East Lulworth was once the stronghold of the Weld family who had their seat at Lulworth Castle since 1641. The Welds were a staunch Catholic family of Dorset and their estate was huge. A serious fire ravaged the castle in 1929 and it was left semi-derelict until the 1990s when it was restored to its former glory and opened to the public. On the Weld Estate Castle Park grounds is situated the first Roman Catholic church to be built since the Protestant Reformation. As well as Lulworth Castle and Park, you can also visit Lulworth Heritage Centre or the Tank Museum situated only five miles away. This charming village consists of 17th century thatched cottages and its village pub, the Weld Arms. The Weld Arms was run by Richard Champ around 1770, a smuggler operating with the well-known gang of smugglers from Osmington Mills. Lulworth was the scene of many a smuggling tale and the despair of the Lulworth Customs Officers. The village is now dominated by the barracks of the Royal Armour Corps who train in the Purbeck Hills.
