On Chesil Beach
Today marks the release of the adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel ‘On Chesil Beach’ so here are some of our favourite properties near the famous beach.
Chesil beach 18 miles long and runs from West Bay to Portland and is a beach like no other. Although it is called ‘Chesil Beach’ strictly speaking it is a tombolo. For those who didn’t complete geography, this means it is a thin strip of sand, shingle or rocks joining two bits of land together and Chesil is the biggest in Britain. So with the release of the movie ‘On Chesil Beach’ bringing it into the limelight, here are just a few of our properties within walking distance of the Heritage Site.
