Good route. Enjoyed the walk and timing is fairly accurate for an average paced walker. I was with someone who struggled with a couple of the steep descents so thatt slowed us up a atbit. My one recommendation would be that the route should start from either the church or the Lulworth Cove Carpark not the Youth Hostel as there is nowhere to park there and in reality most people will drive to Lulworth to do this walk.
