Back for its second year, Dark Castle has become one of the most unique Maverick events in our calendar! We are extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to race from the iconic Corfe Castle so this is the perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to check out the ruins up close.

Soaring above the village of Corfe, the early Norman castle is an unforgettable sight. Corfe Castle was built in the reign of William the Conqueror to control passage through the Purbeck Hills via a road between Swanage and Wareham. There was a fortress at this spot long before the Normans, however; there may have been a Roman military presence here and certainly, there was a wooden palisade here as early as the 9th century.

As you leave the stone bridge and down through the beautiful village of Corfe, you find yourself heading across Corfe common and towards the quaint village of Church Knowle, before heading up onto the ridge at Knowle Hill with sweeping views across Purbeck. You will see the lights of Poole Harbour in the distance and the glow of Corfe Castle to your right.

Start time: 17:00
