Back to Purbeck

27-28 October

More time exploring the Purbeck coast, basing ourselves at the Square and Compass Pub where there were two excellent bands playing over the weekend. Saturday night had Two Man Ting and on Sunday, an old-time group called the Horsenecks – which was particularly exciting!

We did a circular walk, walking south to hit the coast at Winspit where there’s an old quarry and a popular spot for climbers. Then west, around St Aldhelm’s Head, where we spent time speaking with the very dedicated volunteers at the Coastguard Station. It was a really windy day. Further along the coast, we descended steps into a valley that took us to the sea-level, where there was some shelter and a good spot for a quick swim.
