It all started when…

We had just had our third daughter and wanted to have a holiday. My friend, who lived in Abbotsbury told me that her neighbour was going away and that we would be able to stay in her house for two weeks. The first time I saw this view it took my breath away; the stillness of the Fleet and the inky finger of Portland in the distance. The magic has never diminished and we still visit frequently. St Catherine is the patron saint of spinsters and my daughters would recite the prayer for a husband, which used to be on a plaque to the right hand side of the door of the chapel. Sadly the plaque was stolen but the chapel continues to be visited by hopeful young women from across the globe.
