Fragments of a Six-Day War by Guy Martin

This year’s autumn residential weekend will take us to the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast – a region famous for its enticing diversity of attractions, from an ancient castle to chocolate box villages, picturesque beaches, coves and fossils on a dramatic coastline.

Hartland Quay at dawn, Devon by Robert Harvey ARPS

Speakers will include Robert Harvey ARPS, Victoria Hillman, Pam White and Guy Martin. Robert will also lead a workshop on coastal landforms such as rock arches, sea stacks, wave cut platforms, cliffs, coves and bays, and in another workshop the following day Victoria, a scientist specialising in Wildlife Biology and Conservation, will explore autumn colours. Pam is a National Trust historian who will illustrate the architectural and photographic history of Corfe Castle, whilst Guy, an internationally renowned press photographer, will talk about his work in the conflict zones of Africa and the Middle East.

Our base will be the Springfield Country Hotel, a welcoming and comfortable leisure club and spa on the outskirts of Wareham, within easy reach by road and rail. 

The cost for the weekend is £285 per person, based on two people sharing a double or twin room, or £360 for single occupancy. This includes dinner, bed and breakfast for three nights as well as the main programme, ample free parking and free membership of the spa during our stay.
However, as the number of places in the optional workshops is limited and our April weekend in Northumberland was fully booked within a week, we recommend that you move quickly. Please complete the attached form and return it to me with a deposit of £50 per person. If you prefer electronic payments, please make a bank transfer to the group account specified on the booking form.
We very much hope you will be able to join us for this weekend and look forward to hearing from you very soon.
