On Foot

CHAMPERNHAYES Emma Tabor and Paul Newman Distance: 2 3/4 miles Time: Approx. 1 1/2 hours Park: Car park to the east of Champernhayes Lane, near Wootton Hill. The starting point is where ‘Forest Walks’ are marked on Ordnance Survey Explorer 116. Walk Features: An easy walk around the woodlands of Champernhayes. Most of the walk stays in or alongside the woods and is relatively level, apart from a short downhill section where you leave the woods to pass through Spence Farm, and a steady uphill section back towards Champernhayes Lane. The wood has a mixture of beech, oak and conifer and there are some good views across to nearby Coney’s Castle and the coast towards Charmouth, as well as the surrounding hills and valleys which encircle this area. Refreshments: There are plenty of eateries and pubs to choose from in Lyme Regis >
