Harbouring History

Julia Bradbury follows the trail of Britain's lost rail empire on a line from Weymouth and across the unique coastal features of Chesil Beach and Portland.

The backstreets of Weymouth seem an unlikely spot to explore railway history, but Julia discovers there was once a short railway that ran south from Weymouth and across the unique coastal features of Chesil Beach and Portland. The walk is the ideal platform for learning about the history of Portland Harbour and the tied isle's most famous export, Portland stone.
