Moderate - There are some gentle climbs and descents but nothing too strenuous.
A brief expedition through many layers of Dorset history, including a Roman temple and villa, as well as a chalk horse carved into the hillside, carrying George III away from Weymouth. There is evidence of ancient agricultural methods at Osmington, and the manor here was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, while its thatched smugglers' inn dates from the thirteenth century. Children will love the white horse and the foundations of the Roman villa.
