We all need a good walk so today we headed to Hengistbury Head a headland east of Bournemouth whose spit creates the narrow entrance to Christchurch Harbour.

The spit has quite a history of settlement over the years. It was originally named Hynesbury Head. However, after the discovery of the Iron Age artifacts and fotrifications, and apparent confusion over a reference to the area as Hedenesburia–it was renamed Hengistbury Head after the Jutish king Hengest.

The area is now a nature reserve with plenty of well maintained paths around the headland. Daisy was also able to have a romp on the beach.

A good walk.
