We went on a jaunt this morning to Corfe Castle near Wareham. It was originally built by William the Conquerer after 1066 when he swapped a church in Gillingham (where the big M grew up) for the plot of land overlooking Portland.
The castle today is a ruin and it makes an amazing climbing frame. It is beautifully looked after by the National Trust. There is also an old fashioned sweet shop in the town, which we visited too as the big M used to buy quarters of toffee crumble there when she was little. Guess what we bought!
We also very excitingly saw a steam train, which operates on the swanage railway. We didn’t get to ride in it this time, but of corfe, we’ll go next time!
