Dorset is home to some of the most beautiful photographic locations in the UK. On its 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, you will find the pinnacles of Old Harry Rocks and the famous arch of Durdle Door. Just inland is the 11th century Corfe Castle, the moored boats at Wareham harbour and the rolling hills and villages of Thomas Hardy’s Wessex.

Swanage based Mark Bauer – one of the UK’s leading landscape photographers, takes you on a tour of the classic Dorset locations and shares some of the area’s hidden photographic gems.

From the foreword by Tony Bates MBE, President of the Dorset Wildlife Trust:

It is not surprising that there are many books that illustrate the beauty of Dorset, but this one is different.  Mark Bauer has not only provided us with a superb range of photographs but we are provided with great detail on how to find the best viewpoints.

Sturminster Newton

Sturminster Newton - the ‘capital of the Blackmore Vale’ - is a sleepy town which holds a market on Mondays. This used to have one of the largest cattle markets in England but

Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle was built by William the Conqueror to defend the only gap in the Purbeck Hills for eleven miles. This imposing structure must have struck terror into the hearts of any attacking army. The castle finally fell during the English Civil War when a group of Parliamentarians entered...
