EDITORS COMMENTS
Old Wardour Castle: A Journey Back in Time to the Middle Ages Old Wardour Castle, nestled in the heart of Wiltshire, England, transports us back to the Middle Ages with this stunning aerial reconstruction drawing by renowned medieval artist Philip Corke. The castle, as depicted in this graphic, represents its more warlike appearance during the time it was owned by the powerful Lovel family. The drawing brings to life the imposing fortress that once stood as a symbol of power and protection. The moat, encircling the castle, would have been filled with water, making it a formidable barrier against potential invaders. The towering walls, crenellated and ready for battle, stand tall against the sky. The keep, the castle's strongest point, dominates the structure, providing a vantage point for the castle's defenders. The castle's history dates back to the 12th century, but it was during the 14th and 15th centuries, under the Lovel family's ownership, that Old Wardour Castle underwent significant changes. The family fortified the castle, transforming it into a formidable stronghold. The castle's design reflects the political instability of the time, with the constant threat of war and the need for protection. The drawing serves as a testament to the castle's rich history and the ingenuity of its designers. It invites us to imagine the daily life of the castle's inhabitants, the sounds of clashing swords, and the cacophony of the siege engines. Old Wardour Castle, as depicted in this drawing, is a reminder of the past, a glimpse into a time long gone but never forgotten.
