A range of habitats make this spit of land to the east of Purbeck ideal for macro workshops, photographing sundews and other plant species.
It couldn’t be easier to get to – just over the chain ferry from Sandbanks, with ample parking along the road in all but the busiest of weekends (the National Trust carparks are handy too).
Beach, sand dune, heath, lake and bog are all within a short distance of the road, and Agglestone Rock provides a high vista if wished.
Rock pools at low tide, and the surprising colours of the soft sandstone cliffs hint at Purbeck’s geological relationship with the Isle of Wight.
Courses here are practical, with no classroom time.
