The Shipwreck Walk

Tuesday 13th September 2016
New Ground Car Park,
New Ground,
DT5 1LQ

The combination of treacherous currents and rocky coastline make the waters that surround Portland notoriously dangerous and a scene of many a shipwreck. From tales of heroic rescues and plundering of the bounty washed ashore to present day wreck diving, these wrecks have shaped the history of Portland. Join Marine Archaeologist Selwyn Williams on this fascinating walk around the Tophill area of Portland taking in stories of shipwrecks, smuggling and pirates.

Meeting Point: First car park on the left off New Ground Road, nearest to Portland Heights Hotel, DT5 1LQ. Guidance: Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
