Portland walk, 9 October

A bright , clear, although a little breezy walk.

We started on the west side of the island at Southwell Park and went down past the Coastguard Lookout, around Portland Bill and Pulpit Rock before heading up the east side to Church Ope Cove, Rufus Castle remains and the remains of St Andrews Church.

We then cut across the island to the Coast Path before returning to the cars.

This was followed by excellent sandwiches at The Heights Hotel with its great views along the Fleet and across Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay.

The next walk is around Ringstead Bay on Sunday 30th with lunch at The Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills.
