Portland is a large Limestone outcrop off the Dorset coast, it is very windswept and has been shaped by several thousand years of industry. The lighthouse is a famous landmark and can be a perfect rest stop at the end of a brisk walk or time spent climbing the numerous rock faces. Portland is a very diverse place to live, with very few trees, it can be a lion or a lamb depending on the weather, which tends to be extremely pleasant during summer months and not too severe during winter time.
