Cee’s Which Way Challenge 2015: Week #4 – A Path Through History

 A Path Through History

Rickety fences direct your steps with genteel insistence as you follow the meandering path, uneven stone beneath your feet and the summer sun warm upon your skin. With curious eyes you explore the ruins. Once an extravagant display of elitist dominion, a focal point for struggles of class and ideology, the castle walls were forced to tumble in the wake of ignominious defeat. Now masonry lies in unruly heaps, moss and ivy creeping in a spreading mantle of greenery.


Here is this week’s entry into Cee’s Which Way Challenge.

The photograph was taken at Corfe Castle in Dorset, another fortress that was destroyed by the parliamentary Roundheads after they defeated the royalist Cavaliers in the English Civil War. To find out more go here or here.
