Swanage lies in a particularly attractive corner of Dorset, in a sheltered bay overlooked by the Purbeck Hills, with chalk cliffs along the coast and views across to the Isle of Wight. Until late Victorian times it was a fishing village and transfer point where locally quarried Purbeck stone was loaded onto ships that took it to London and the wider world. Many of the old images in this book capture the expansion of Swanage around a century ago when it was evolving into the thriving holiday resort that it remains today. Swanage & Around Through Time also looks at some of the surrounding parts of the Isle of Purbeck. There are views of Corfe Castle, which guards a strategic gap in the Purbeck Hills, together with the picturesque villages of Studland and Worth Matravers. The spectacular local coastline, now part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, also features.
