November 2013 For this walk I’m actually going to describe two different walks. I first did this walk in 2003 and have done it several times since then. The most recent was in November 2013, but I did not leave … Continue reading

86. Lulworth Cove to Kingston

August 2014 Logistically, this is another tricky walk, but it is also a very good one. The previous stretch of coast (from Lulworth Cove to Weymouth) I stated was the best walk on the South West Coast Path. That being … Continue reading

77. Abbotsbury to West Bay

June 2008 I was travelling from the other side of Dorset for this walk. From there it takes a similar amount of time to get to Abbotsbury as it does West Bay. I wanted to get the bus journey done first, … Continue reading

75B. Lyme Regis to Beer

June 2012 This is a section of coast path that I have already walked, so you might be wondering why I am posting about it again. The reason is that whilst the previous walk (which I numbered 75A) was along … Continue reading

75A. Beer to Lyme Regis

June 2009 This walk is unusual in that I have some overlap with the previous walk. This is a consequence of the fact I have not walked the coast in order and that I really like the little town of … Continue reading

74. Seaton to Sidmouth

June 2009 This is a bit of a milestone, as it is the last walk wholly within Devon, and it is a very good one. I began the day in Dorset and so drove west via the A35 and then … Continue reading
