BUT some key points are as follows:
Numbers are limited to 15 and are dependent on the discretion of the walk leader
Please text the walk leader on 07766473720 if you want to join this walk, as those turning up without booking and/or where beyond the stated maximum for the walk will not be permitted to start
It’s important that walkers also take personal responsibility for their own safety by maintaining physical distancing and taking appropriate precautions, supporting the walk leader in that endeavour
Please note that a record of attendees will be taken on the day and kept for 21 days to support NHS contact tracing.
This is one of our favourite annual walks that takes us from West Bay along the SWCP to Lyme Regis, returning on the bus back to Bridport/West Bay. The walk starts from West Bay, the home of Broadchurch and takes the SWCP west to Eype, Thorncombe Beacon to the first short break at Seatown. The walk then continues up Golden Cap, past St Gabriel Church remains (where early lunch will be taken), and on to Charmouth for either an ice cream or coffee stop. The final part of the walk is along the beach to Lyme Regis depending on the tide. The bus back is at 15.49, there is currently a limited service on this route. There is the option to leave the bus at Bridport and walk the Monarchs Way back to West Bay an extra 1.5 miles or to remain on the bus. In the past, some of the group have partaken in a "fish supper" by the harbour at West Bay before returning home.
