Kimmeridge Bay 4/5

I took a few shots of the top of Hens Cliff and Clavell’s Tower with my Panasonic TZ60 using its extensive 720 mm zoom, this one set at about 230mm. The tower was built in about 1830 by Reverend John Richards Clavell of Smedmore House as an observatory and folly. The Reverend John Richards had changed his name to John Richards Clavell after inheriting the estate in 1817.

Quelle jolie vu, j'aime le petit escalier.
Brian Walbey: Stairs make it a lot easier to walk up long slopes I always feel.

It nearly fell into the sea at one juncture, so they had to move it back a bit
Brian Walbey: Ys it did Chris, I have a note to that effect tomorrow.

It's very fine walking here, and not too steep
Brian Walbey: Yes I think even I could manage that Lisl, give my Heart some of the exercise it needs.

This looks a fine place to go for a walk Brian.
Brian Walbey: It's part of the South West coastal path that Lisl has walked Chad.
I would say this coast has it all.
Brian Walbey: This is the third part of this stretch of coastline I have featured this year, the others being Studland Bay and Durlston Head, they are all within a short distance of each other.

It was in a sad state when I last saw it but since then to has been moved further back from the edge of the cliffs and renovated. Trust me; those steps are challenge - in either direction!
Brian Walbey: Looking through the windows those steps certainly look very steep.
I bet the view from atop this tower is spectacular, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it must be Beverly.
what a wonderful panoramic view Brian... it is seamless....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
The luxury of creating a folly, now more or less restricted to cranial challenged politicians.
Brian Walbey: I couldn't agree more Martin, IMHO the latest one goes under the code name HS2!
It must make a great lookout tower.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure the views around are enhanced from the top.
