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.
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.
