Notes:

There has been a castle on this site for well over a thousand years. The buildings there now were started in the 11th century, but were slighted (made insignificant, or at least indefensible) after the English Civil War, probably in 1646. Even as a ruin, Corfe Castle towers over the surrounding town.

Today the castle is open to the public and is owned and run by the National Trust.
