Description

A wonderful view of stereotypical English countryside best appreciated with lashings of ginger beer. The railway actually has steam trains running on it.

This doesn't really do the view justice. I tried to take a much bigger gigapan several times (over two days) but the weather and gremlins got in the way.

Update: here it is share.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=20850.

    I don't know about ginger beer in the US, but over here it is a sweet fizzy drink flavoured with ginger. It is the preferred beverage of Enid Blyton's characters 'The Famous Five' who have adventures in an idyllic rural English settings (discovering criminal gangs hiding out in castles, smugglers etc). I have never read a Famous Five book (they are considered very non-PC these days) but I believe Blyton lived in Dorset and the books are set there too, and Corfe Castle and Lulworth Cove are exactly the sort of setting the Famous Five would explore. There would be an early appearance in the story of a disreputable-looking groundsman or a visitor with a foreign accent, and it would turn out they were criminals (like Scooby Doo). Anyway, the phrase 'with lashings of ginger beer' means, to someone of my generation, 'this is just like we are in a Famous Five story'. Its use is usually ironic given that people like the children in Blyton's books no longer exist (thankfully). If you can find it, this TV show tells you all need to know: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Go_Mad_ in_Dorset Will open in

    There is a place in Houston that is famous for Ginger Beer, but I have never heard the phrase, “lashings of ginger beer." What does this mean?
