Under-Hill

The people and places of Fortunes Well and the surrounding areas of Portland’s Underhill

On an island where the traditional industires were quarrying, masonary and fishing. Portland has seen its local industry slip away into history and almost disappear. Considered one of the four main priority areas in the Weymouth and Portland Council, the people of Portland’s Underhill have seen drastic changes over the last fifty years that have left local shops to close and house prices to rise. A slow destruction of Portland’s unique character, excuvating its wild beatuy, cut and re-cutting flower border verges, building new unfamiliar estates foreign from Portland’s nature and achieving a suburban sameness. This is a series with no hidden agendas, no exploitation, just a short cut to knowing, what it is like to be there.
