Beside The Seaside
In the summer of 2018 we had great fun visiting this place.
The village of Pagham sits on the edge of Pagham Harbour - an amazing place right at the borderline between the land and the sea. Over the centuries the area now occupied by Pagham Harbour has oscillated between successful attempts to reclaim it as farmland, followed by disaster when the sea decided that it wanted the harbour back.
The shallow waters of Pagham Harbour are now a valuable Nature Reserve of which we had great fun visiting with our binoculars! We spotted many a few birds this particularly day.
Pagham Harbour is a great place to walk and a really interesting place to get your head round the awesome power of Nature.
Pagham Beach is a quite popular with fishermen.
The Crab and Lobster Pub at the Sidlesham side of Pagham Harbour is a good spot for a beer and a lovely view of the harbour.
We stayed at Church Farm close by and had a fantastic time.
Another summer 2018 visit we had a wonderful time here.
Eroded by time and nature, Durdle Door is one of Dorset’s most photographed and iconic landmarks.
You need tons of energy and good walking shoes in these neck of the woods but the location promises not to dissapoint.
With lots of places to eat whether it be an ice cream, an afternoon tea or much more, the vicinity of Durdle certainly doesn’t lack when it comes to eateries.
The information centre is particularily helpful too.
It is located on the Lulworth Estate in south Dorset and is part of the Jurassic Coast. The coastline is of such international geological importance that it was designated England’s first natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001 and is now part of a family of natural wonders including America’s Grand Canyon and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The magnificent natural limestone arch was formed when the power of the waves eroded the rock and forged a hole through the middle. The name Durdle is derived from an old English word ‘thirl’, which means to pierce, bore or drill.
As you look towards the sea, you will see Durdle Door beach on your right. Access to the pebble and shingle beach is on foot via a path and steps over the hill from Lulworth Cove or down from the Car Park (charges apply) which is located on the cliff top at Durdle Door Holiday Park.
Here at Hilsea Lines is a great place for a beautiful walk or bike ride. A hidden gem north of the City
