The Route 12 Terminus …
Looks like a good place for a lunch!
But there is much more beyond, notably the lumpy bit, actually known as Warren Hill …
… and, after a sharp left hand turn you are on Mudeford Spit.
Here is a drone-type view showing Warren Hill and the Spit …
… and a view back in the opposite direction from Spit to Warren Hill.
Since April 1968 there has been a wheeled link between the bus terminus and the Spit. The link is provided by what has generally been known locally at the “Noddy Train”.
The original was somewhat basic but a delight all the same.
At its peak, the service had THREE “locos”.
With the retirement of the owning family, the service was taken over by the local Council, a process which included the “retirement” of the traditional stock and replacement by a commercially available Land Train.
Perhaps sadly, the “train” only offer two stops; at the Hiker Cafe for interchange with the buses …
… and then well past Warren Hill, the other terminus is a short way along the Spit.
The ferry is a very professional jobbie as illustrated by their promotional video.
So there is your round trip. By 1C ,,,
