The Isle of Purbeck is a fascinating part of Dorset which is a little paradise and a delight to both local people and visitors.  This easy-to-read book is full of all the information needed to offer the reader, or would-be explorer, a feel for an island full of beauty, history, archaeology, architecture, mystery and legend.  As armchair reading, it is designed to inspire the wish to discover new places or capture memories and in the field it is an essential companion for a walk. It is
especially useful as a guide to new visitors.  The book embraces the magnificent Jurassic Coast from its sandy beaches to its cave-ridden limestone and chalk cliffs, broken only by sheltered caves. Inland, the ridges, valleys and rolling heartland offer picturesque views and are a haven for wildlife. Iconic, stone-built villages abound, most with accompanying church and manor house, adding their own characteristics to the surrounding countryside.  Many are depicted in over 300 meticulous illustrations and maps for which an explanation is given in hand-written text.  The drawings were created from the author’s direct experience of countless walks and thorough investigation of Purbeck over a number of years.
