Our Projects - Golden Cap Estate
The National Trust’s Golden Cap Estate is situated between Bridport and Charmouth in West Dorset. It is a coastal property with a range of habitats and contains the highest point on the south coast, Golden Cap at 191m. There are several car parks and access points and the South West Coast Path runs the entire length of the Estate, a distance of 8 miles. The estate hosts several thousands of visitors each year and we know that over 100,000 climb to the top of Golden Cap, using the South West Coast Path, every year. All the paths across the estate have numerous stiles and very few gates so access can be a problem. Thanks to funds raised by the South West Coast Path Association and from the Unlocking our Coastal Heritage project,we were able to replace all the stiles on the South West Coast Path with kissing gates.
