Walk - Langdon Hill, Golden Cap & St Gabriel's Chapel
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Seatown Car Park - DT6 6JX Seatown Car Park
Challenging - A moderately hard walk, with some steep ascent and descent, rewarded by spectacular coastal views, and a shortcut bypassing Golden Cap for those who want a gentler stroll.
A walk through the woods on Langdon Hill, visiting the medieval hamlet of Stanton St Gabriel, now a handful of refurbished cottages and a ruined thirteenth century chapel. The landscape spread out around Langdon Hill is criss-crossed with ancient trackways as well as fields and hedgerows from medieval times, and the traditional farming methods used on National Trust land encourage a profusion of wildlife. Children will love the freedom of the open ground and the old lanes, as well as the forest paths and the ancient ruins.
