News Clipping: Portland is an explorer's paradise

The former 'Mermaid Inn' at
Church Ope Cove, Portland.
commemorates that a mermaid
actually once came ashore there!

The isle of Portland – that long, low wedge that can be seen to the east from all along the West Dorset coast – is an explorers’ paradise, with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered.
