Walk - Dancing Ledge and Seacombe Bottom
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Spyway Car Park - BH19 3HG Spyway Car Park
Challenging - There is some steep ascent and descent, and the paths can be slippery, so good footwear is essential.
A moderately strenuous walk around some breathtaking coastal scenery, with fascinating glimpses of the caves and quarries of Purbeck's limestone formations, and an insight into their importance to stonemasons, geologists and fossil-hunters. A fine walk in springtime, when cowslips nod around ponds shimmering with frogspawn and sometimes puffins can be seen nesting on the sliffs. This is an area where dinosaurs once roamed freely, although the huge fossilised footprints they left behind are on private land, and older children who can cope with the distance will love the walk.
