Forthcoming Fine of the Month

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Jeremy Ashbee, Head Properties Curator of English Heritage, has been in touch about the inventory of Corfe and Sherborne castles which formed the subject of Huw Ridgeway’s fine of the month for December 2010. Jeremy had previously thought that the term ‘la  gloriette’ at Corfe, as attached to  King John’s splendid new building, was introduced by Edward I. ‘The fine roll’,  he writes, ‘changes all that’ for the name appears there ‘which is phenomenal to see’ and ‘immensely exciting’.   Jeremy’s fine of the month about all this will appear shortly
