Very beautiful and well captured...
I find it particularly beautiful and harmonious that the handrail of the fence runs exactly at the waterline

The tower certainly has had a chequered history, Rosa. At least it still stands albeit in a shortened state. ;-)

Lovely views of dear old Swanage Rosa. As a child, I used to be a regular visitor as we lived between Wool and Wareham.
Two of my brothers went to the boys grammar in the late fifties, travelling by train from Wareham. Our father's cousin was a driver on the line and, in the days before the safety elves arrived, they might have sneaked a ride or two on the footplate!
