Portland, Dorset

Around the island



Rufus Castle, Mrs A J Dean, Illustrations of Dorset History, 1960

"From thence you maye fee the Race of Portland, as it is called, which is the Meeting of the two Tydes, with soe great Striveing and Beateing of the Waves, that it is most dangerous for anie Barke to passe over it, though in the calmest Season" - Thomas Gerard, 1620s
