Starting near the beginning of Abbotsbury Road the route follows the old railway line to Portland. With the new footbridge it is now a continuous walking trail. Plenty of views of the town unavailable anywhere else. Lots of birdsong at the right time of the year. Many of the old halts and platforms still exist and add a certain something to the walk. A copy of a history of the line would be useful on the walk to learn about the various parts of the route. Sandsfoot Castle is near the Portland end of the walk and has a cafe with reviving beverages! Also toilets. The end is near the Ferrybridge Inn and there is a convenient bus stop back into town. There is also an excellent fish restaurant nearby.
