Mileaters - Stroll along the Fleet

Jan Lesley 1
25 walkers and 7 dogs left the new church car park in Chickerell and joined the coastal path towards Abbotsbury. The weather was calm and the views could be called stunning. 

Several points of interest were pointed out along route. The 2 concrete bunkers used during WW2 and the Fleet being England’s longest Lagoon coming in at 8 miles. This Lagoon was used to test the famous bouncing bomb.

Continuing along the coastal path we came to Moonfleet Manor and walked past Donkey Island (Herbury Island), it got this name when the seaside donkeys at Weymouth came here to holiday over the winter.

Carrying on when we came to Rodden Hive we took the uphill path in land and stopped for a coffee break halfway up and enjoyed the lovely view. Moving on we walked through the quaint village of Langton Herring passing the 13th century gothic church and a splendid patch of snowdrops and daffodils.

Heading back down to the coastal path we climbed the last hill up to West Fleet camp site and joined the road that would take us back to the church.  A well earned lunch at the Luggers Inn pub was washed down with some hearty ale.  Thank you to all those who walked – lovely to see so many and a big welcome to our new members.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
