Reginald Herbert Spooner, one of the greatest batsmen of Edwardian England

Reginald Herbert Spooner, one of the greatest batsmen of Edwardian England.
He played in 10 Test matches for England, seven of them against Australia, between 1905 and 1912, and against South Africa at Lord's in 1912 he scored 119. He never toured abroad with England, business or injury preventing him making the trips to Australia in 1903-04 and 1920-21. In fact he played very little first-class cricket after the First World War, retiring in 1923 with 13,681 runs (including 31 centuries) at an average of 36.28. He scored five double-centuries for Lancashire, his 200 not out against Yorkshire at Old Trafford in 1910 being the first double-century in the "Roses" match, and still the only such score for Lancashire in these matches. He was also a brilliant fielder at cover-point, and as a Rugby centre-threequarter he played for England against Wales at Swansea in 1902-03. In 1945 and 1946 he was president of Lancashire C.C.C

Corfe Castle Dorset rises behind a drystone wall.
Corfe Castle's location - sandwiched on a hill, in a gap between two other hill ranges made it almost impossible to attack. As a result it was largely used as the Royal Treasury. It was also famous for being the location of one of the few cases of known regicide in Britain - on the 15th April 975, the young King Edward was stabbed in the back as he mounted his horse whilst hunting in Purbeck - he was buried without honours as he was (clearly) unpopular with the nobility, yet his body was later exhumed and found to be untouched by decay. As a result he was declared a saint and a martyr.
