The Agglestone on Black Down, Purbeck
Looking northeast with the Agglestone in the foreground and the Godlingston Heath NNR beyond that. The Agglestone is a collapsed 500 tonne pedestal sandstone rock, forming an interesting hilltop tor. There are various old stories about it being hurled by a giant from the Isle of Wight.
In the far distance is Brownsea Island and Poole Harbour.
