Greetings From Corfe Castle Dorset Postcard

Corfe Castle, Dorset

A postcard from the 1960s from Corfe Castle Village in Dorset - though you can probably get a similar postcard today.

The verse is in the Dorset dialect - I'll leave it to you to translate, it's not too difficult!

As for Corfe Castle this is Wikipedia's description:

"Corfe Castle is a fortification standing above the village of the same name on the Isle of Purbeck in the English county of Dorset. Built by William the Conqueror, the castle dates back to the 11th century and commands a gap in the Purbeck Hills on the route between Wareham and Swanage. The first phase was one of the earliest castles in England to be built using stone when the majority were built with earth and timber. Corfe Castle underwent major structural changes in the 12th and 13th centuries."

I also have lots of photos of Corfe Castle on my other blog, see: Corfe Castle Where West And East Are In The Same Direction
