Corfe Castle from a different view.

Sunday afternoon saw us scrambling up the castle mound in Corfe Castle. There was a diesel gala there last weekend and D wanted to have a look, he's not a fully paid up train spotter but if somethings happening locally he likes to see it. The first picture was taken from up on the mound but not actually in the castle.
The old station is very pretty and the station masters garden was wonderful, a real cottage garden with lilac in full bloom.
Just a sneaky peep through the gate.
Sadly the main road to Swanage passes through the village but these cottages have been there for generations, well before the car appeared.
Just another view of the castle.

Wonderful pictures. Love the train station. Your pictures make me want to live in a little village in England! :-)

I remember going up to Corfe Castle last year.Mr Boo decided that it would be fun to walk along a very narrow path..with an almost vertical drop..running along the edge of the mound,rather than go the easy way up like everyone else!
It's a lovely village and you have taken some great pics!

Happy memories of Corfe - many of them. I can remember walking along the railway line before they had got as far as Corfe with restoring it, and there were beautiful Orange Hawkbit (Fox and Cubs) growing on the track . . .

How lovely to see those pictures - I have had some very happy times holidaying around Corfe Castle. It is a beautiful part of the country.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I emailed the author, and had a lovely reply back. Her humour in the quilting book is wonderful.
