Walk - Abbotsbury from Sea Barn & West Fleet Farms
5.7 miles (9.2 km)
Sea Barn Farm & West Fleet Holiday Farm - DT3 4EA Abbotsbury
Moderate - The walk is on footpaths through fields and around the coast, and after heavy rain these can be verymuddy, so wear stout footwear. There is a certain amount of ascent and descent in the middle and towards the end.
A bracing walk between coppices and withy beds to the ancient village of Abbotsbury. Allow plenty of time before you catch the bus back, to view the crumbling remains of the eleventh century abbey and the monks' famous swannery; the twelfth century tithe barn; the fourteenth century chapel on a hill; and the many studios and galleries in the village.
