After an excellent nights free camping on the moors (Exmoor National Park) it was time to hit the road with some commitment. We have a train to catch on Wednesday afternoon in Folkstone and that’s on the other side of England. So we start to head east into Somerset on the A30, it’s an easy drive a bit narrow on occasions but that’s not a problem at a leisurely pace. By mid-afternoon we are thinking about a spot for the night. East of Shaftsbury, we see a turn for Old Wardour Castle and drive on. A mile further along we see another sign for the castle and I have one of those feeling, so we turn for the Castle.
We purchased an English Heritage, Overseas Visitors Pass a Corfe Castle a couple of weeks and stayed the night there for free, so maybe we can get lucky…
