Highcliffe Castle Door

Although this door looks ancient, it’s actually relatively new. Charles Stuart, the 1st Baron Stuart de Rothesay, built Highcliffe Castle on the cliffs overlooking the sea at Highcliffe on the Dorset coast of England between 1831 and 1835. The magnificent building was once lavishly furnished in the style of 18th century France and it remained a family home until the 1950s when the home fell into disrepair. In the late 1960s two fires destroyed most of the building and it remained largely derelict until 1977 when the local city council purchased the remains. Today it is a thriving community asset, hosting numerous concerts, weddings and celebrations.
