Walk - Limekiln Hill from Graston Copse
3.5 miles (5.7 km)
Graston Copse - DT6 4QP Graston Copse
On Chesil Beach the pebbles vary in size, from pieces the size of pea gravel in West Bay to cobbles as big as potatoes at Portland, and it is said that in seafaring days fishermen and smugglers knew where they had landed, even in the dark, by the size of the pebbles. This walk follows the shingle bank for a short distance before climbing the hill above to return through coastal heathland with spectacular sea views. Children will love exploring the remains of the old limekiln and a wartime bunker.
