What a view

by

Ridgeway viewing platform (large version)

A small viewing platform at the end of Broadmayne Road is being built by a local dry stone walling specialist.

The platform looks towards Maiden Castle and Dorchester, and is on the South West Coast Path near one of the Ridgeway round barrows, a Stone Age burial mound.

It is hoped that an information panel about the local area will be also be put at the platform.

The wall has a concrete core that provides the strength to hold up the viewing platform sides, but the outside is constructed like a dry stone wall.

It will provide a picturesque resting place for walkers and cyclists.
