Walk Description:

 

Experience the real essence of Purbeck on this circular walk which starts near to the famous Square and Compass Pub in the beautiful village or Worth Matravers.

This tranquil setting has a history of quarrying for Purbeck stone and the landscape has been shaped by this heritage whilst the pub seems to have changed little since it was frequented by the Quarry men (apart from having a Cider Cart and Fossil Museum).

On this walk your leader will take you out from the Village to the Coastal Trails. Note – Walk is subject to change in the event of sea fog 

Known as the Smugglers Way, the walk will take you via the East Man and Seacombe before climbing back to Worth Matravers. There are a couple of climbs (circa 50 steps) and one small stone ‘gap’ stile to negotiate.

Distance: circa 3 milesYou will finish back at the Square and Compass where you can enjoy a glass of local Beer with views out to Sea.Walk starts and finishes at Worth Matravers Village Car Park – honesty box £2.
