Pictures from the section of the Dorset Coastal path between Sandsfoot Castle and the Bridging Hard on the Fleet.
Setting off from Sandsfoot on the old GWR railway track, now called the Rodwell Trail.
Approaching Ferry Bridge and the Fleet.
The Ferry Bridge Inn and the new houses built on the site of the old torpedo factory.
Portland and the harbour.
Over the road now and on to the Fleet. Looking back towards the Ferry Bridge Inn.
10 miles to Abbotsbury. Our destination is the Royal Engineers bridging hard a few miles down the Fleet.
This is the Oyster farm.
An old concrete observation post. Perhaps this was used for observing the bouncing bombs tested here during WW2.
Our destination today is just around the bay and over the hill.
A walk across the small beach.
A rare picture of Dorsetcamera.
It was here also that some of the early prototypes of Barnes Wallis’s “bouncing bombs” of the Dam Busters fame, were first tested.
The remains of an old boat.
The end of today’s walk.
The bridging hard used for the training of Royal Engineers.
After a cross country inland route we are now back at Sandsfoot Castle.
