…..then this is the walk for you! Starting at sea level, unsurprisingly we walk uphill, along the coast eastwards to the top of Cain's folly. Inland now, still gaining height up Stonebarrow Hill and along the ridge to Chardown Hill, before plummeting down to the remains of the mediaeval hamlet of Stanton St Gabriel .We continue by walking behind Golden Cap, leaving a short climb to the top of it's familiar table-top summit; at 191 metres, the highest cliff on the south coast. Needless to say, the views of the Jurrasic coast and Lyme Bay are magnificent. The return is a 3 mile undulating route along the Coast Path to Charmouth and tea and cake at the beachside cafe to celebrate a satisfying day out! Please bring a picnic.
