Poole Harbour

Poole Harbour has an area of approximately 36 square kilometres (14 sq mi) and is claimed to be the largest natural harbour in Europe. The harbour is extremely shallow (average depth: 48 cm), with one main dredged channel through the harbour, from the mouth to Holes Bay LinkExternal link

National Cycle Network Route 2

National Route 2 will link Dover with St. Austell when complete via the south coast of England and is sometimes referred to as the South Coast Cycle Route.
The route is only fully open, at present, and signed between Dover and Brighton, but is still under development between Brighton and St. Austell.

The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.

National Cycle Network Mileposts

1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and found along the cycles routes through the UK.

There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, "Rowe Type" by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.
