The Swanage & Purbeck Walking Festival

This week has seen another Swanage and Purbeck Walking Festival: a collection of walks that take people all over the Isle of Purbeck and with many different themes. I took three groups out this week, to three different areas each in a completely different setting. Tuesday was from Studland, over the hill to Swanage via the incredible Pinnacles formation. Thursday was Studland again, but this time we stayed inland and visited Agglestone Rock: a 400t lump of sandstone that sits in the middle of beautiful heathland. The third was to Tyneham, via the ridge, making sure that we visited Flowers Barrow, an Iron Age hill fort high above the deserted village.
Three superb walks to three wonderful places with some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

Snow on the Purbeck

We don't get snow here on the Isle of Purbeck very often but this year we have had a good covering twice in as many weeks. Unfortunately...
