Walk along the beach at Studland

As well as a visit to Swanage, the popular couple, along with their two daughters, also went for a walk along the beach at Studland, posing at Middle Beach for photos.

Exploring the history of the area, Vernon also took a snap of himself at Fort Henry – the Grade II listed World War Two observation bunker which was built in 1943 to defend Studland from possible German invasion.

“Stunning scenes on the beach

Vernon Kay wrote:

“Wrapped up warm (again!), this time a beach stroll down in Dorset. Stunning scenes on the beach.

“Studland Bay was used as part of the rehearsal for D-Day. Fort Henry was a lookout over the bay. You can tell I have a fave hat and jacket combo!!”
