Walk Description:

Built by George Burt this cliff top gem was always designed to encourage walking and it does not disappoint. Peppered with unusual features dating back to the stone quarrying heritage and full of wildlife it is full of interest.

We will take the lesser known paths through woodland and wild meadows as well as the stunning coastal paths. We take in views across to the Isle of White and sometimes see Dolphins and orchids too.

Walking down along the lighthouse road, with lovely view of the coast, we then turn off and walk up an incline and into beautiful wild flower meadows. From here there are lovely views over Swanage bay.

We then continue our walk into Townsend Nature reserve and loop back around to Durlston.Where you can visit the cafe for refreshments.

The first section of this walk is on pavement so if you are using poles you will need the rubber paws.

Plenty of parking costing £1-£2 per hour depending on the time of year.
