Please note that a record of attendees will be taken on the day and kept for 21 days to support NHS contact tracing.
The first half of this walk was presented by Julia Bradbury, as one of her short walks on ITV (entitled Dark Dorset).
This is a stunning walk encapsulating beautiful country side, villages and part of the SWCP.
We begin at Symmondsbury where we climb up Colmer Hill, from there we make our way to Hell's Lane, onto North Chideock, Morecomblake and St Gabriel's Chapel where we stop for lunch. After lunch we climb Golden Cap and return via Seatown, Thorncombe Beacon cutting in land past Downham Farm tearooms!! and back to Symmondsbury where we will seek out further refreshments if possible.
Parking is on the street, just past the pub with the Church on your right.
