Fine coastal walk from West Chaldon. Along the Bridleway to the coastal byway, then W to fork L at the old chalk pit. Fine views. Returned via the SW Coast Path as far as Whitenothe ( good steep descent & ascent to the sea here ), then back tot he car.DanMaisieBex03/07/2020

From Dagger's Gate to east along top and return via SWCP past Durdle Door and on to Hambury ToutMark Sims26/03/2018
5 hr circular walk from Osmington with L. Lovely coast walk from west up Burning Cliff, so named as the oil shale rocks can occasionally, after a landslide, catch fire and burn naturally (only about 3 times a century acording to Delightful wooden chapel with garden benches to enjoy the far reaching views and closer good views from the old Coastguard Cottages towards Durdle Door. Summit v dull by comparison being set back in a field -but the walk to get here very enjoyable. Took rough track down NW through dry valley of Open Access Land to squeeze through a herd of docile cows pressed against the exit gate. L patted them and got her hand licked.Chris Pearson05/04/2017
Parked at Lulworth Cove for £5.00 for 4 hours then had a look around then up Hambury Tout, then along the coast via Durdle Door, Swyre Head, The Warrens before going directly uphill to the Admiralty Navigation Beacon and finally Chaldon Hill before returning by the inland route.Dugswell201/11/2016

From Newlands Farm clifftop car park. Coast path out, in-land path on return.jonglew11/11/2015
Large ploughed field. Long walk.arranc17/03/2015
Free parking at South Down (near Falcon Barn) for a circular walk along the down top road, a wander in the Warren (huge numbers of butterflies and flowers) and a visit to the dull summit of Chaldon Hill before going to the top of White Nothe. A steep,daring path goes from here but it looked terribly overgrown low down so I carried along the cliff top path and made my way to the nudist beach which was welcome because it was 28 deg C, unbroken sunshine and I could have a swim without getting my boxers wet (the worst thing!). Suitably attired again, back through Ringstead which was pleasant, though busy, and I could feel smug about avoiding parking, tolls and fees as I walked up pleasant paths to the downland start. Just 6 miles, yet so much to enjoy.pwheeler22/07/2014
