Branscombe to Beer
Start: NT car park at Branscombe Mouth (charge applies) (OS 115, SY 207 882), 6.5 miles, 3 hours.
Meet at Newton Poppleford recreation ground car park (OS 115, SY 088 899) at 09.15am to share cars or meet at the start point.
A popular coastal walk along the SWCP with fantastic cliff top views on the return journey. We'll take the Hooken Undercliff path eastwards, where a slump in the chalk cliffs in 1790 separated a ten acre piece of land, now a wooded and sheltered habitat with chalk pinnacles on the seaward side. A steep set of steps will bring us up to East Cliff, where we'll return to Branscombe on the cliff top path, passing the old Coastguard Lookout and down another set of steep steps.
Optional lunch/refreshments afterwards at the Sea Shanty café. Please be aware that the path is slippery and uneven in parts and may be muddy.
