Worbarrow Bay

Worbarrow Bay Dorset Landscapes

Some days are so beautiful that they almost defy description.  Today was such a day here in Dorset. Dorset id a county of infinite beauty, and the jewel in the counties crown is undoubtably the Jurassic Coast.

I have walked huge swathes of the South West Coastal path which stretches some 630 miles from Poole to Minehead in Somerset Via Land end.  The village of Tyneham was cleared by the Army in 1943 as they wanted to use the land around the tiny village as a training ground for tanks bound for the D-Day landings.  The Villagers have never been allowed to return and the Army still uses the area for tank firing ranges.  You can get access to the village and range walks at weekends and during the School holiday periods in the summer and at Christmas.  Worbarrow bay is about a mile south of the village and is a beautiful unspoiled area.  I hope the photographs give you an idea of just how stunning this area is.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
