Moving to Dorset?
With its quaint thatched villages and softly undulating green landscape punctuated
by dramatic white chalk hills, Dorset is almost obscenely pretty. So much so, in
fact, that one of its top tourist websites is devoted to dispelling the myth that
all it has to offer is beauty. The makers of the site have a point: this is one
of the oldest areas of Britain, both naturally and culturally, and has more conservation
areas than any other county.
Fossils including an entire Ichthyosaur and Jurassic trees have been found all along
the coastline, which documents the entire Mesozoic era, from Triassic to Cretaceous.
The first known human settlement of the area was by Mesolithic hunters in around
8000 B.C.; these were followed by Neolithic and Bronze Age civilisations which left
burial mounds everywhere. The most famous Iron Age fort is Maiden Castle, constructed
around 600 B.C. – but it was not until the arrival of the Romans in 43 A.D. that
Dorset really blossomed. Roads were built all over the county, radiating from Dorchester,
and the people moved down into the valleys, beginning the agricultural way of life
that still continues today. The Saxon invasion a few centuries later changed little.
In the Middle Ages, the area became a favourite place for the monarchy and nobility
to go hunting. Even the Industrial Revolution did not change the rural outlook,
whose main influence on the rest of the country has been through the trade unions.
Dorset has a mild climate, with warm summers and mild winters, and more hours of
sunshine than anywhere else in the country; this is one of the many reasons that
it is such a popular tourist destination all year round. The Jurassic Coast World
Heritage Site still hides many fossils for those who care to look; there are also
astonishing land formations at Lulworth Cove – the Durdle Door is an amazing natural
arch – and the Isle of Portland, a spit of limestone which juts out into the Channel
from Chesil Beach; there are still plenty of fossils to be found. Walkers will enjoy
combining paleontological finds with the South-West coastal path, which stretches
from Devon to Poole, which has the second largest natural harbour in the world.
And families and animal lovers alike will love Brownsea Island, the home of the
Scout movement and today the site of a Red Squirrel sanctuary.
The county town of Dorchester is very pretty, its golden streets lined with old-fashioned
bookshops and tea rooms selling delicious cakes. Thomas Hardy lived a few miles
away and you can visit his cottage in the woods. Many visitors bypass this in favour
of the seaside resorts. Bournemouth was built in the Victorian era and retains a
genteel feel to it; a gracious town with pretty public gardens, it has a very large
retired population. The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is internationally renowned.
Weymouth is just as pretty but more relaxed; the main leisure activity here is sailing,
and there are plenty of yachts in the harbour to prove it. Lyme Regis is the most
classic resort, with plenty of bars and pubs to choose from. There is no classic
Dorset cuisine, but fish and chips are as delicious here as anywhere on the south
