Heading out for the coast, this section has a few climbs before easing off past beaches, farmland and a nature reserve. Pass St Catherine's Chapel on the walk into Abbotsbury.
Leave high cliff tops behind you as you head along the coast today. Burton Bradstock is a great resting spot with its old spinning mill house and thatched cottages. Keep your eyes peeled for the peregrine falcon above you - the world’s fastest bird.
Chesil Beach follows with its 18 miles of pebbles, which is uniquely separated from the mainland by a lagoon. There a choice of two paths here, one following the beach and the other heading inland across the South Dorset Ridgeway and visiting Abbotsford Castle.
