The Dorset region
Dorset: is chalk downs (sheep, yew-tree woods, marbled white butterflies and a carved giant) and chalk cliffs (over which, in Far From the Madding Crowd, Gabriel Oak�s sheep cascaded and below which Sergeant Troy left his clothes at Durdle Door) and chalk streams (trout fishing) and dark-thatched stone cottages with exuberant flower gardens. It is great bowls and vales of green tree-speckled farmland looking magnificent from wooded hill-tops, some with ancient forts; and country houses in their own valleys, reminding one of Brideshead; and lots of double-barrelled village names often beginning with Winterbourne or ending with Abbas and the one and only Whitchurch Canonicorum. It is fossil-filled cliffs (and hunting them on the beaches below) by Lyme Regis (French Lieutenant�s Woman) and Charmouth, and the dome of Golden Cap near Chideock, and the extraordinary 18 mile long Chesil Beach of pebbles which regularly wrecked sailing ships, enclosing a lagoon which inspired Moonfleet (about smugglers) and shelters Abbotsbury and its swannery; and it is Portland (its views, stone and Bill), and Thomas Hardy, Egdon Heath and the lanes that Tess plodded, and Lulworth Cove which gave its name to a butterfly. Weymouth (with still handsome seafront and sandy beach where King George III made bathing machines popular, and now with Olympic sailing facilities) and Poole (huge natural harbour full of boats and Brownsea Island with red squirrels). Sherborne is its best looking small town. At Tyneham, Army occupation has caused an unintentional sanctuary for wild flowers, birdsong and friendly (mostly) insects. The whole Dorset coast is called a �World Heritage Coastline�.
Poole: large seaside town (five sandy beaches, restaurants, shopping, nightlife) around an enormous and magnificent natural harbour, beautiful with boats and excellent for sea bathing and watersports. Ferries cross to Purbeck (more sandy beaches) and pretty Studland via Brownsea Island (Nat. Trust). Bournemouth (resort town), 5 miles. Inland, beautiful Dorset farmland and the New Forest.
