Stonebarrow, Charmouth

Stonebarrow (National Trust) is high above Charmouth to the East of the village. It is a dog walkers delight (and hence the ensuing problem which I have to restrain myself from griping about) so best course of action is to drive the length of the car park until you get as far as you can. A dusty track leads down to Westernhay Farm; a handsome property clinging on to the eroding cliff edge with an artistically planted garden. From here you join the coastal path. To me this is visually one of the best parts of the path and you can reach Golden Cap in reasonable time (1.5 miles, kind of hilly mind you) or a similar distance to Charmouth to the West. The vista is totally open to the sea, all the way…
