South West Coast Path - Dorset's Jurassic Coast

South West Coast Path - Dorset's Jurassic Coast

by: Dennis Kelsall
The Dorset coast is perhaps the most varied of the whole south west peninsula, encompassing glorious beaches, towering cliffs, detached stacks, long shingle banks and picturesque coves and inlets. The handiwork of man both past and present is there too, in settlement, quarrying and even oil extraction. But there is little to detract from the coasts overall beauty; and the coast's huge range of habitats is reflected in the sheer abundance of flowers and wildlife that you will experience along the way.

This little pocket guide is produced in full colour with an emphasis on stunning professional photography. Each route has clear easy-to-follow numbered instructions and full colour OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping. At the beginning of each walk chapter there is a box giving all the practical information you require, such as distance, a time estimate, start location with grid reference, OS map sheet number and details of any refreshment facilities. A summary of each walk is also provided. All the walks are circular. There are also fascinating facts about places along the way.
