Walk - Chideock Inland Walk
5.4 miles (8.7 km)
Seatown beach car park - DT6 6JX Seatown beach car park
Moderate - Travelling along footpaths, tracks and quiet lanes, the walk also goes through open heathland and alongside tiny streams where you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of dragonflies flitting above the wildflowers.
A stroll through several centuries of fascinating history, featuring the ditches and dykes of a long-gone Norman castle, the English Civil War, and the men from Chideock who were willing to die for their faith. The route heads along a ridge high above Chideock and the surrounding pastureland, giving spectacular views over field systems unchanged since medieval times, many of them farmed according to traditional methods which encourage a proliferation of wildlife.
