Olympic Park and Ride Car Park, Monkey's Jump Dorchester
Olympic Park and Ride Car Park, Monkey's Jump Dorchester
This shows the temporary car park next to Monkey's Jump roundabout just off the A35 outside Dorchester. The field it is in is normally arable but large plastic mats have been laid on grass to form the access roadways onto the site. The white house is McDonald's Restaurant and the cars arrived by a temporary gate just to the right of that. The area in the centre of the site is where the toilets were and where the buses arrived. They came and left by another temporary gate on the left (west) of the site. The fields in the foreground in SY6689 and the photographer was on top of the ramparts of Maiden Castle in SY6688. The clump of trees in the right centre is the Monkey's Jump roundabout and the clump of trees at the left middle is on the sharp bend in the minor road down to Martinstown and the woods in the middle distance are running along the top of Fordington Down. The very distant hills are Charminster Down on the left and Charlton Down on the right.
