Coney's Castle



"Conig or Kings Castle, as its name implies, is said to have been the headquarters of King Egbert when he fought his brave, but losing battle against the Danes at Charmouth beach in 833" (Turner 1947). The same romantic etymology has occured to other authors, with similar developements: in fact the name means what it says, rabbits' castle. formicaant Posted by formicaant
