ISLE OF PURBECK
Despite its popularity, few corners of England have as much to offer as the Isle of Purbeck – or remain so unspoilt. With a past dominated by the marble and stone industry, and a present by the ruins of Corfe Castle and the largest onshore oilfield in Europe, Purbeck’s charms continue to beguile both visitors and residents alike. Wild heathland, windswept heights, as intoxicating a coast as any in Britain, a concentration of miniature landscapes packed into some sixty square miles – the paradoxical ‘little paradise’ so vividly unfolded by Paul Hyland still retains its unique character.
