Portland (4) Views from the lighthouse


We were recently fortunate enough to spend a few days at the Old Higher Lighthouse mentioned in the previous post.  It was here that Marie Stopes entertained various  eminent visitors including Thomas Hardy, George Bernard Shaw and H G Wells.

The original lantern has been converted into an observatory with spectacular 360 degree views.  Whilst enjoying the comfort afforded by the protection of the windows, the scene outside is constantly changing.  The sunsets are  especially impressive and sometimes quite dramatic.

  1. What a beautiful, open spot to relax.

  2. I didn’t realise you could stay there – what a perfect spot for photography!

    • It really is a lovely place to be with the observatory facility on tap. Not surprisingly, the glass is very dirty but the owners will provide a key giving access to the outside platform.
