A medieval ruined castle which was a stronghold in the time of William the Conqueror is partially reopening following major repair work, it was announced yesterday.

The £700,000 project to restore Corfe Castle, in Wareham, Dorset, was announced in August last year to conserve the 1,000-year-old monument for future generations.

Phase one of the two-year conservation programme by the National Trust and English Heritage saw stone conservators replace the old lime mortar to consolidate the crumbling masonry in the castle’s gloriette and inner ward.
