Overview
More
A moderate 3.8 mile stroll along the South West Coast Path around the much-photographed chalk stacks rising spectacularly from the clear water off The Foreland at Studland. The same sea that carved the soft rock into caves and arches also polished the vertical cliffs to a dazzling white. There are far-ranging views over Swanage in one direction and Wareham and Bournemouth in the other. There are some long but gentle climbs and descents.

Interesting place to visit. I won't go discuss the history behind the village as every post on here has already done that. Well worth the visit. Access along a road through the firing range go to the Lulworth Range Walks website and it gives opening...More

Every now and then, you discover something mind blowing and Tyneham is that for me! It has an ethereal air of sadness to it, while it's history is both poignant and touching. It is truly reminiscent of the British spirit, a spirit of sacrifice and...More

We arrived early on a hot sunny Sunday morning and were still not the first visitors. Signposting is poor until you get to the final gated road to Tyneham. Plenty of space to park so plan on taking your time. They have done an excellent...More

Not an easy approach road to the village for a big car but well worth the trouble. Restricted opening times due to tank and firing activities. Check website for information. There are now toilet facilities on site but no refreshments. Parking is free but we...More

Great drive out just to get to this place. Not always accessible as on the tank firing range. Information brings the place to life. Beware though no toilets or other facilities here at all. Entry is free but you are asked for donations for parking
