Walk Description:

Starting from The Houns-Tout car park in Kingston we walk out across field and with lovely view of the Purbeck hills.

we then begin our decent back down to Kingston. At this point we can see Emmett’s and Aldhelm Head. Can be cold and windy so please wear warm clothing and wear suitable footwear.
