St Catherine's Chapel

Mileaters Jan 2019

Sixteen Mileaters and two dogs set off on a bright, frosty morning for their first walk of the New Year.

We started in Portesham and walked along the route of the old railway track that used to run from Upwey to Abbotsbury. Gerald recounted a story about the Thomas Hardye school train that used to run every day in term time from Weymouth to Dorchester and was once diverted to Abbotsbury because some knowledgeable pupils managed to change the points at Upwey!

The climb up to St Catherine’s Chapel at Abbotsbury was rewarded at the top with a stop for coffee and wonderful views out to sea and along the coast. We were also able to pick out the lines of the old strip lynchett field systems on the hills behind Abbotsbury. We zig-zagged down the other side of the hill towards the Swannery and joined the coastal footpath, which didn’t disappoint those who stood admiring the views whilst catching their breath. Finally along the road to East Elworth and across the fields towards Portesham where at least 7 Cattle Egrets were spotted - and no they weren’t gulls.

We arrived back in Portesham and to the Kings Arms where some stayed for refreshments and a well deserved lunch.

In all a distance of about 5.5 miles and not too much mud.
