These two sections of World War 2 Mulberry Harbour units lie in Portland harbour near Portland Castle where they were abandoned after use in the Normandy Landings. They are just two of many that were taken across the English Channel to provide the port facilities necessary to offload the thousands of men and vehicles, and tons of supplies necessary to sustain Operation Overlord and the Battle of Normandy.

1 mile (£15) / 3 miles (£20) / 5 miles (£25)
