THE FINEST VIEW IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND.
[To THE EDITOR OP THE "SPECTATOR."]
Sin,—As a native of Dorset I may be prejudiced in favour of my county, but the view from the top of Abbotsbury Hill seems to me one of the finest and at the same time quite unique in its beauty. It must be approached from Weymouth, by rail or by motor, and it is not till you have reached the brow of the hill that the whole panorama opens before you. At your feet lies Portland, with the long line of the Chesil beach uniting it to the mainland, sharply defined, and the Fleet or backwater behind it. The curving coastline of Dorset and Devon lies before you, and on a clear day the eye may travel
as far as Torquay.—I am, Sir, &c., E. D. STONE. Radley College.
