Blyton, the author of "Noddy",
"The Secret Seven"
and "The Famous Five"
amongst others, holidayed in S
wanage and on
the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, three times a year
for over twenty years and used local Dorset
locations in her books. As an example Corfe Castle
is the inspiration for Kirrin Castle in the Famous
Five series of books.
Endecott, a life long Enid Blyton fan, who runs
this website, has written a book (The Dorset Days of Enid Blyton)
and used to run Theme Holidays and walks around Corfe
Castle from her shop "Ginger Pop" in
Corfe Castle square. - Unfortunately her shop has now closed but
why not visit her site
which gives interesting local
information about Enid Blyton.
