Just a short walk from ‘the village where time stopped’, Worbarrow Bay hides a rich and melancholy history. In 1943 villagers were forced to abandon their homes to make space for a military training area. Today visitors can take a look around the village on the way to Worbarrow.
After soaking up the history, stroll down to the coast where the perfect curve of the bay, blue water and golden sands will take your breath away. Access is limited as the area is still used by the army, but visitors can usually come on weekends and public holidays.
