The Buckfast Millennium Pilgrimage 2018

Day 6: Wareham to West Lulworth

Today's early morning walks through semi-rural and common land are followed by some long walks, steep climbs (and descents) over the Purbeck ridges and army ranges, with stunning views of the Jurassic coast and the Dorset landscape. Approx. 14 miles but feels longer because of the steep climbs.
