What's the Story? - We visited Durlston Country Park, Swanage on a cold March day just after the birth of our first grandchild. Having taken lots of shots Richard decided the view of the Great Globe with the top of the Castle in the background made the best composition. Constructed in Greenwich in 1887 and made from Portland stone, it's surface shows the continents, oceans and certain more specific areas of the world. Around the Globe is a set of stone plaques carved with quotations from English and Roman poets and the Bible, as well as facts about the natural world. We remember the days when you could walk right up to the globe which is now protected by a fence.
