      A few years back I was in London and had downloaded to my mobile an application which had several self-guided walk routes. The maps and info were downloaded on my mobile and the app used GPS to show where I was located, Points of interest with information on them and where I should be heading.

      My friend is going to London on Sunday and I advised her to download the offline maps and routes in beforehand but now I can't find them anywhere!! Does anyone know which app I'm talking about, it should be an android app..? Anyone?

      Suggestions: Corfe Castle or ?

      Dorset Dec 27, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      I sell scenic photos at our local farmers market of trips I've taken around the world. Here's the plan for April 2013: Ma and I will stay 1 night at Thornbury Castle near Bristol and we wanted to take the train to Wareham & then a bus to visit Corfe for 2 nights, take the steam train to Swanage etc. After our 2 nights, we planned to take the bus back to Wareham & a then the train back to London via Farnham to make a quick visit to Waverley Abbey on the way (yup, we know it's rushed, we're ok with that). Here's the problem: I'm having difficulty getting accomodation for Corfe and it seems the 3 places I've looked at (Morton's & Norden & Ammonite) all want a non-refundable deposit (Morton's doesn't really ask for it on the website but their rates are higher). I like Norden's, but they are farther out than the other 2 and since we're on foot it makes getting to the hillside to take morning shots that much more of a hassle. But still, I might persist and do it anyway, if I can get a room, and if I'm convinced it's worthwhile. So, should I keep persisting and somehow try to take my photos or should I go somewhere else altogether? I'm looking for sugggestions. Should I stay or should I go? I need to know if Corfe photos might be sellable to my market patrons or is there something better to shoot in the region between Thornbury & London (we'll already have visited Stonehenge, Glastonbury, and Bath). My patrons like old castles, evocative landscapes, etc. Corfe seemed ideal, if I can get some mist in the shot. It's the lodging that seems to be the main problem.
