Dorset 40 Coast and Country Walks Guidebook

Dorset 40 Coast and Country Walks Guidebook

author: Patrick Kinsella
From Old Harry Rocks, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, all along the shore of the Jurassic Coast to Lyme Regis, via the glowing summit of Golden Cap and the one-eyed winking lighthouse at Portland Bill, Dorset is a walkers' wonderland.

The 40 routes in this book roam over hills and across heathland, go through forests and voluptuous valleys, trace ridgelines and precipitous cliffs, passing caves, castles, coves, country pubs and stunning viewpoints, to find vibrant villages and secret beaches. Here you'll come face-to-face with history, walk with the words of Thomas Hardy ringing in your ears, witness wondrous wildlife and encounter all manner of cottage industries, from community cake and marmalade makers to microbreweries bubbling away in back streets.

Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access where available. Clear route finding instructions are provided together with simple overview coloured sketch maps, but OS Explorer map sheet numbers are also provided. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way and there are colour photographs throughout.

The walks are arranged into five geographical sections:
Poole Harbour and Southeast Dorset
Hardy Heartland: Central and North Dorset
West Dorset
Lyme Bay and Portland
Isle of Purbeck
