This morning all our guests took a walk from Kingston to Sywre Head. It was very breezy but the visibility was good.

Syre Head looking east

This has to be one of the best places in Dorset for viewing the coast. To the east you can see St Aldhelm’s Head and then beyond to St Catherine’s Point on the IOW (to the left of this photo) and to the north much of Poole Harbour (behind you from this viewpoint)

Swyre Head looking west

To the west the coast towards Lulworth and White Nothe shows clearly as does Portland. Hardy’s Monument can be seen in the distance (to the right of this photo)

 

 

 

 

 

After a pub lunch at the Scott Arms, Nigel and I continued to Kinston Lacey house for another taste of culture.

The Dining Room at Kingston Lacy, Dorset. The organ was installed in the 1880s having probably been moved from the Saloon. The ceiling was inspired by the design at Coleshill in Berkshire. Photo from the internet
