Artist's Description

Safe Haven

Number of views as of 24th February 2018 = 7820.

The inner harbour at West Bay, near Bridport, West Dorset, England.

Currently my 10th most viewed shot on RB!

Vessels heading east along the English Channel from here must negotiate the sometimes perilous seas around Portland Bill before they reach the calmer waters of Portland and Weymouth harbours.

TV viewers may recognise West Bay as the location used for the BBC drama series ‘Harbour Lights’ (starring Nick Berry as the Harbour Master of ‘Bridehaven’) or ITV’s Broadchurch,

St Johns Church (upper left) was consecrated in 1939 but looks much older.

High cliffs to the east and west provide the village with some shelter.

There has been a harbour here since the 14th century.

Date: 22nd February 2009.
