The Globe was installed by George Burt in 1884.   

The plan for this shot was to photograph this early in the morning when the light would be more favourable.   What I hadn't realised was that Durlston Castle was at that point a building site; the Globe was accessible, but required a detour to get to as the coastal path was closed north of here due to the building work.   This also meant that the angle I had intended to use (facing west) was full of fencing in the background, so I moved to the north side of the globe instead and faced south instead.  What remained of the fencing was removed with PSP.
