Weymouth, Dorsetshire

Kearsley's Traveller's Entertaining Guide Through Great Britain (1803):

Weymouth, Dorset.

Its port is injured by the sand; from which circumstance and the rise of Pool, its trade which was once considerable, is now reduced. This decline is, in some degree, compensated by the great resort of persons of all ranks, for the purpose of sea-bathing; for which it is excellently fitted by its remarkably fine beach, and the softness of its air; and their present majesties and the royal family have often resided here for many weeks. A few plain and striped cottons are made here. Here was a chapel, which stood on a hill, whose site is now a bowling-green. The castle stands on a high cliff almost opposite to Portland-castle and commands the bay. It was built by Henry VIII.

Inns: Crown, Golden Lion, King's Head, Bear.

"May I indeed? Then I will speak the truth, and nothing suits me so well. I met her frequently at Weymouth.
