Solent Views

Wow!!  Summer is back :)

Enjoyed a short 4 mile afternoon walk from Colwell Bay where we had perfect views of Hurst Castle on the mainland, the shortest crossing to the Island, just one mile.

From Colwell Bay to Totland Bay & the former lifeboat station.

Up onto Headon Warren & the location of a bronze age burial mound.

Unfortunately all these tombs were broken into so no treasures were found in recent times.

We saw the remains of Hatherwood Battery, built in the 19th century to keep the French out!! In the background The Needles & the Old Battery.

Plus the remains of Totland Pier, now being lovingly restored.
