Sandsfoot Castle and the Rodwell Trail

Sandford Castle

Halfway along the Rodwell Trail you'll find Sandsfoot Castle, built by Henry VIII in 1539 to protect his kingdom from foreign invasion.  Abondoned by the military in 1665 it's become an iconic ruin overlooking Portland Harbour for the past 350 years in Green Flag gardens with an outdoor cafe where a free guide can be obtained. 

Rodwell Trail is a 3.4km green link for walkers and cyclists and a haven for wildlife between Weymouth and Ferrybridge following the course of the old Weymouth to Portland Railway.  Wheelchair friendly although most access points are steep it is suitable for all ages
