Corfe Castle and the most photographed pub in the world14 February 2014
The Greyhound pub has in its time claimed to be the most photographed pub in the world. It’s a lovely pub but not that special. Of course, everyone is photographing the rather spectacular ruined castle in the background. A castle has been on this site for a thousand years but it was destroyed in 1646 by the Roundheads in the Civil War.
I drew this to practise using my new “Sailor DE Brush Stroke Style Calligraphy Fountain Pen”, which is quite a long name for what is a very interesting pen. Its nib is bent to 55 degrees which means it’s possible to have a huge amount of line variation. It’s a fun pen. I’ll put a review up once I’ve got to know it better.
