We opened our forth shop in Fortuneswell, Portland in June 2007. Portland has some of the most spectacular views in Dorset which include the famous Chesil beach barrier formation and Portland Harbour; one of the largest man made harbours in the world.
Portland has a fascinating history from castles, quarries and churches to coves, smugglers cottages and the famous lighthouses at Portland Bill.
Portland also has an excellent network of public footpaths and round the coves and rocks you can see the sites of numerous shipwrecks, the scenes of smuggling which was rife here for more than 200 years.
In the second half of the 17th century, Sir Christopher Wren, (who was at one time MP for Weymouth), used around six million tons of Portland Stone to rebuild around fifty churches after the Great Fire of London. The stone being taken by barges along the coast to the River Thames.
