How wonderful to see Corfe Castle featured on the Bing.com home page today. (Bing Canada daily wallpaper) Well done Matt Gibson (photographer). As this beautiful image beams its way around the world on Bing, time to celebrate. After all, this is one of the benefits of living in coastal Poole, Dorset no less. A short hop across the Poole Harbour ferry to this wonderful Norman castle and surrounding Isle of Purbeck village. Time for a visit maybe?
Below we share a few more photos of this dramatic stone castle, standing high above the Dorset hills, dramatically exposed to the frequent battering of strong, salty coastal winds.
