Portland, the Jewel of the Jurassic coast.
Portland has long been known for it's fantastic stone and also it's famously known for the lighthouse and strangely the prison.
Portland played an important role in WW2, especially the D Day landings, which also launched from Portland as well as other sites along the south coast.As far as I am aware, the first Bomb dropped by Germany in the UK landed in Portland harbour, bravely defended by heroic locals.
Portland is now also known for being the centre point of the stunning Jurassic coast.
Portland to be
While Portland has a rich past, we also feel the future looks bright, with the continual success of the watersports and marina playing an important role with tourism.
With the internet making the world a smaller place, Portland will continually gain further exposure to the general population, here in the UK as well as overseas.
The last decade has seen alot of change on Portland, we feel the next decade is also going to see exciting changes here.
