A church has been at Wyke Regis since 1172 and the present church was built around the 1450's. Above the main door there is a carving of the Royal Arms of Henry VIII, said to have been brought here originally from Sandsfoot Castle which lies on the coast on the Wyke side of Portland Harbour and is well worth a visit, as is the cafe just a little further along from the castle.
The hub of the village is the square in what is called "Old Wyke" which hasn't really changed much in the last couple of hundred years and is every picturesque.
Wyke Regis lies along the Rodwell Trail, a track that follows the track bed of the Old Weymouth to Portland Railway line for just over two miles between Abbotsbury Road in Weymouth to just beyond Wyke Regis at Ferrybridge. It makes for a great walk with views to keep you company on route and is realtively level the length of the trail so a good way to get to Weymouth although there are a few beaches you could explore at the Wyke end too. The walk was featured on the BBCs 'Railway Walks' with Julia Bradbury.Read less
