Dorset Reports

CorfeCastle, Dorset

Review of CorfeCastle by PETE on April 9th, 2006
Corfe Castle was historically the location of Edward the Martyr's death [murdered by his stepmother, to allow her son, Aethelred, to come to the throne] in the Anglo-Saxon period. The Castle would no doubt have been a wooden structure in those far off days.but the ruins today are of Norman masonry.
