Walk - Langdon Hill, Golden Cap & St Gabriel's Chapel
4.5 miles (7.2 km)
Seatown Car Park - DT6 6JX Seatown Car Park
Challenging - A moderately hard walk, with some steep ascent and descent, rewarded by spectacular coastal views, and a shortcut bypassing Golden Cap for those who want a gentler stroll.
A walk through the woods on Langdon Hill, visiting the medieval hamlet of Stanton St Gabriel, now a handful of refurbished cottages and a ruined thirteenth century chapel. The landscape spread out around Langdon Hill is criss-crossed with ancient trackways as well as fields and hedgerows from medieval times, and the traditional farming methods used on National Trust land encourage a profusion of wildlife. Children will love the freedom of the open ground and the old lanes, as well as the forest paths and the ancient ruins.
An alternative route to the summit of Golden Cap as part of three-hill walk starting with the iconic Colmer’s Hill features in 'Britain's Best Walks with Julia Bradbury'. To find out more and watch the TV episode about it, click here.
