This thousand year old castle in Dorset is steeped in history; defended during the Civil War by the prudent and virtuous Lady Bankes, the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarians due to betrayal from within. Rather than rebuild or replace the ruined castle they chose to build a new house at Kingston Lacy on their Dorset estate near Wimborne Minster. In the 1980's Ralph Bankes bequeathed Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacy to the National Trust. Today, the castle creates a beautiful backdrop to many family days out.
This fine bone china mug belongs to the National Trust collection.
