Location: Bournemouth, Dorset, England.

Standing proudly at the eastern end of Poole Bay and sheltering Christchurch Harbour from the prevailing westerly winds, Hengistbury Head is one of the jewels in Dorset’s crown.

Rich in history, the remains of both Stone Age and Iron Age settlements provide evidence that the Head has been inhabited on and off for 12,500 years. In more recent times, 18th & 19th century smugglers landed their cargoes on the beach, and there’s even the remains of a Victorian quarry and port.

Modern amenities include a large car park, popular cafe, and a golf course, not to mention the brightly coloured “Noddy” train, a favourite with children and adults alike. Our feathered friends love it here too as well as several species of insects, butterflies and reptiles.

This view of Hengistbury is taken from Southbourne and shows the Isle of Wight and The Needles on the horizon.

Date: 19th March 2008.
