By the Bridge

Passing Place

The builder of this bridge thought of everything this handy place for pedestrians is not used that much today as the traffic is diverted.

Wool Bridge and Manor

This historic bridge at Wool is no longer the main route and so is often overlooked but it is a very pretty spot.

Reflected Lights

The light of the pier reflected in the sea and sand were photographed just before the sun went down and we had a glorious sunset.

Gorgeous Sunset

About Dorset

Dorset lies in the South West Region of England and at its extreme points it measures 50 miles (80 km) from east to west and 40 miles (64 km) north to south, and has an area of 1,024 square miles (2,653 square kilometres). Demographically Dorset is one of the less populated counties in the United Kingdom, with only approximately 390,000 inhabitants but it has stunning scenery, diverse attractions and picturesque villages for all to enjoy.

Famous for its Jurassic coastline, Dorset has now been given World Heritage status and visitors have a wealth of interesting things to do, including fossil hunting, going to the beaches, exploring the castles and visiting the places made famous by Thomas Hardy. Dorchester is easily recognised as Casterbridge whereas Budmouth was the name that Hardy used for the port of Weymouth and Melstock referred to in "Under the Greenwood Tree" is actually Lower Bockampton where Thomas Hardy went to school. The cottage where Hardy was born is to be found in Higher Bockhampton and in his books Hardy calls this place Egdon Health.

Please take care when fossil hunting as the cliffs are subject to rock falls and it is important to be aware of the tides to avoid getting cut off.
