This was the ninth stage of 10 days walk along the Jurassic Coast section of the South West Coast Footpath between Exmouth and Poole. Sadly the tenth day would not happen as that was to be the walk through the military range and the bus to the start (Wilts and Dorset Service 40) did not start running until 23rd July :( never mind - another day.
