SY9582 : Corfe Castle: the castle from West Hill

Corfe Castle: the castle from West Hill
Corfe Castle: the castle from West Hill
This view of Dorset's most famous castle is not the most often photographed - it is a stiff climb up to the top of West Hill and, of course, it looks magnificent anyway from the village without venturing this far.

The castle's position on its own lump, between the ridge leading here to West Hill and the continuing ridge from East Hill beyond, is very appreciable from either side.
