Upwey - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This was the second time I was in Upwey, and decided that the picturesque little village called out to be photographed. It was a restful place to be in the mid morning sun. This picture was taken from the graveyard of the church of St. Laurence.

Upwey is a small quiet village a little north of Weymouth and south of Dorchester in a leafy valley along the River Wey. The village has a small visitor and craft centre and is often used by walkers and hikers as a starting point for exploring the walks in the surrounding valley. The town has a Wishing Well at the spring of the River Wey. It is sometimes called Upway, though this is a misspelling. At the village is an old Mill House dating from 1802 and the church of St. Laurence built in the 13th century.
