A circular walk from the picturesque Dorset village of Abbotsbury with its plentiful supply of stone thatched cottages. The walk climbs up to the South Dorset Ridgeway, which gives stunning views over a long stretch of coast, before heading down through the tiny village of West Bexington and back to Abbotsbury along the South West Coast Path alongside Chesil Beach. The walk has a couple of fairly steep ascents/descents, a fairly exposed section along the top of the Ridgeway and a couple of stiles. Most of the paths are across fields which could be muddy after wet weather and the fields are also likely to contain grazing cows and/or sheep so take extra care if you have dogs with you.

Lovely walk ..we did it in reverse and I think that way is much easier

Lovely walk. Although we know this area, we had never walked this section of the ridge path before.
