A walkers guide to Portland.

Extracts from this document...


A walkers guide to Portland This walk is not suitable for people in wheelchairs or the challenged in walking because of the terrain and up and down hill walks. This walk will take 40minutes to an hour depending on your walking speed. The walk is approximately 2 miles long and will get you back to where you started. There are plenty of rocks to perch on if you get tired and a pub to have a quick drink in at the end, as well as a chip shop to get some food in for the journey home. To start this walk drive or walk to Courtland's Road on Portland and park somewhere near the first flat opposite the bus stop near the playing field and start walking up past the school playing field and past the graveyard until you get to a wooden stile. ...read more.


Keep walking until you get to a point where there are two paths one that goes straight forward and one that goes to the left, take the left path and walk about 20meters to get on to a downward slope path that goes along side the cliff edge. When you get to that flat ground again stop and look out over the water see if you can spot any fishing boats or anyone snorkelling in the sea. You can see all the way down the cliff if you get to the cliff edge and on a clear day you can see land right over the other side of the sea. Keep following this path until you get to a type of bridge made of stone, if you look to your right you can see a little cave. ...read more.


Keep on the path and walk along the cliff side for about another 150meters, then take the path that goes towards the metal tower and take the path to the side of the tower. Walk down this grassy path for about 500meters until you come to the end and you will end up on a footpath with a road, go round the right hand corner and walk along the path and take the left hand corner and walk up past the pub and chip shop and go back and find your car. I hope you found this walk as enjoyable as I did, and if you feel you want a longer walk, you could carry on walking down the costal path until you get to Portland Bill. Where there is a caf´┐Ż, beautiful views out to sea and of course the lighthouse itself. Adam Dunford - English Coursework - 08/05/2007 1 ...read more.
