Lighthouse & Lobster Pot

Portland Bill and Chesil Beach are the graveyards of many vessels that failed to reach Weymouth or Portland. The Portland Race is caused by the meeting of the tides between the Bill and the Shambles sandbank about 3 miles SE. Strong currents break the sea so fiercely that from the shore a continuous disturbance can be seen. Portland Bill Lighthouse guides vessels through these hazardous waters as well as acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.
