Sherborne Old Castle: A Medieval Masterpiece of Defense and Fortification This reconstruction drawing by Philip Corke transports us back in time to the mid-fourteenth century, when Sherborne Old Castle in Dorset, England, was under the ownership of Robert Wyvil, Bishop of Salisbury. The castle, a testament to the architectural prowess of the medieval period, stands proudly against the backdrop of the picturesque Dorset countryside. The intricately detailed illustration offers a bird's-eye view of the castle, allowing us to appreciate its grandeur and complexity. The castle's defenses, a crucial aspect of its design, are evident in the thick walls, towering turrets, and the moat that surrounds it. The drawing reveals the castle's layout, with its central keep, outer bailey, and inner ward, each protected by formidable walls and strategic gatehouses. The graphic representation also highlights the castle's architectural features, such as the crenellations, arrow slits, and machicolations, which were essential for defensive purposes. The illustration also reveals the castle's elegant chapel, a symbol of the religious and cultural significance of the castle during this period. Philip Corke's reconstruction drawing is a meticulous and accurate representation of Sherborne Old Castle as it may have appeared during the medieval era. It offers us a glimpse into the past, allowing us to appreciate the castle's rich history and the defensive strategies employed during this period. This illustration is a valuable resource for historians, architects, and anyone with an interest in the medieval period, providing a unique insight into the design and function of one of England's most impressive castle ruins.
