March 1 March 2 March 3 March 4 March 5

  • Manor Farm, Ashmore – the highest village in Dorset (220m approx) – the scene is representative of the conditions prevailing throughout much of this month
  • Golden Cap from on the beach at Seatown, a slight fog coming off the sea reducing the visibility for most of the day
  • A short distance south of Bishop's Caundle, the oldest Post Office pillar box still in public service – dating from 1853
  • Also near Bishop's Caundle, Fritillaria meleagris, also known as Snake's-head Fritillary or Bell-of-sodom
  • Chideock (nr. Golden Cap) seen from the site of the former castle. The cross is in memory of 5 catholic priests who – as an extreme consequence of religious intolerance – were executed during the late 16th and early 17th century
