Corfe Castle

Today’s walk was a combination of land and sea; starting at Corfe Castle and going out to the SWCP at Houns Tout/Chapman’s Pool and returning on the Purbeck Way. The walk was 9 miles with 1265ft of ascent. It presented significant navigational challenges through a lack of signposts and if it wasn’t for my GPS, I think that I might still be there now. I must have backtracked at least 3 times on the way out to find the correct route and only found my way back through Corfe with the help of directions from a local resident.

There was a very steep descent down a series of steps at Chapman’s Pool and someone had very helpfully scratched on the bottom step “166 to go”.

It was cloudy for most of the day but still warm. I sent Bea a text yesterday to see how she was faring on the West Highland Way. Her reply said that there had been some drizzle but she was enjoying the walking.
