Stories wanted for new centre

Plans for a new museum and visitor centre on Portland have gone on display.

And residents are being invited to provide stories and artefacts to be included in the new attraction, planned for the former engine house at the top of Incline Road.

Designs for the new £1.5-million visitor centre - on show at the Portland Heights Hotel - include a walkers' cafĂ©, display area and an audio-visual classroom for educational groups.

Residents are asked to view and help shape the proposals by offering information and material to illustrate the island's history and geology.
