Reconstruction of Roman Temple, Jordan Hill, Bowleaze CoveBOWLEAZE COVE East of Weymouth is partly wild and partly seaside development, all small-scale and dominated by the long white vaguely Spanish building of the old Pontinís holiday camp. Many caravans, an amusement complex, cafe and so forth. The low clay cliff slips are ugly, but from the top of Furzy cliff are good views east to Redcliff Point, and west all round Weymouth Bay and Portland.

On the top of the hill behind the houses the footings of a little Roman temple are preserved. This is Jordan Hill, and the river which borders the caravan sites is the River Jordan. From the temple is a good view north to the chalk lump of the Ridgeway.
