From large car park in Tyneham. Access road liable to closure as on army ranges. Open most weekends, but not all - check online to avoid disappointment. N first to Purbeck pillar, all in cloud this morning. On SW Coast Path to Worbarrow Tout, then along Gad Cliff to Tyneham Cap before returing to the car park. Whole journey waymarked by bright yellow marker posts to avoid straying onto the army range.jonglew12/07/2015

From large car park in Tyneham Village at SY 88221 80232. Climbed steeply up to Gad Cliff along wide paths bordered by yellow posts. Left turn for Tyneham Cap then back over Gad Cliffe for Worbarrow Tout and return via footpath beside wood. An excellent little walk!David Gradwell31/03/2012
From Kimmeridge on cliff top path, continued along path to Flowers Barrow then returned over Whietway Hill and Tyneham village. Very interesting coastal scenery and recent history of military use- a bit regimented - ie keep btw the yellow posts but a small restriction to walk in such an interesting area. A bit hurried, just finished before the rain started.pwheeler25/09/2004
