Walk at Hengistbury Head – Near Christchurch England

Well not a week into our journey and we are behind posting material.

We will update our activities today then work back the over the next few days to bring it up to date.  We found a great place to live in an area called Deansway Court in Bournemouth.  A short walk to High Street, in a beautiful park setting.  We are renting from a meteorologist and his wife whom we first contacted through Gumtree [similar to Craigslist].   We expect to finalise this tomorrow, with a move in date of June 1.

Today we hiked to Hengistbury Head, near Christchurch.  It was first settled in the Stone Age, about 14,100 years ago.

“Hengistbury Head is home to a plethora of nationally and internationally significant archaeological sites, with features dating from the Late Upper Palaeolithic to the Roman settlement of Britain.  Interest in the site declined throughout the Dark Ages, until extensive development took place in Christchurch around 890 AD. “[from Wikipedia]
