A bold 17th century mock castle built by the Wheld family on the Lulworth Estsate. After a fire in 1929 the interior was destroyed, but the exterior remained but went to ruin for a while. A new roof was built, but they left the interior as it was after the fire, resulting in two magnificent venue spaces where the remnants of fireplaces, stairs and door are left exposed. The Castle is now primarily a venues for weddings and festival events. the estate had a catholic chapel, one of the first to be allowed in the England and also has a parish church.
We had the opportunity to shoot just as a wedding was being se up by an outside cater and shows some of the interior details.
