APRIL - THE ISLE OF PORTLAND

 

Portland is a huge block of limestone, 4.5 miles long and 1.75 miles wide, reached over a narrow causeway from Chesil Beach. The famous Portland Stone quarried here has been used for many well-known buildings. In the second half of the 17th century, Sir Christopher Wren used Portland Stone to rebuild London after the Great Fire.  Many of the quarries are owned by the crown as Portland is a Royal Manor. The stone was taken by barges along the coast to the River Thames.

Visitors enjoy going to the tip of the island, Portland Bill, gazing up at the lighthouse and down at the waves pounding the rocks. Pulpit Rock is climbed by the less nervous, or perhaps the foolhardy if the weather is rough.
