Crossing the Outer Bridge brings the visitor to the Outer Gatehouse. This is the main entrance to the castle.
The May 2009 visit to Corfe Castle was my first visit to a National Trust Property as a member of the organisation; I had joined at the beginning of the previous month. I had visited the castle before though, once in 2006 on a holiday in Bournemouth, and again on my first Swanage holiday in 2008.
