Jonathan Dimbleby has promised to walk a section of the South West Coast Path to mark forty years of the South West Coast Path Association.
The last western leg of the path is part of the Dorset Coast Path and joins the Bournemouth Coast Path at Sandbanks so the Associations’s guide, revised and updated annually, is always of special interest.
Also, it is the coast path between Swanage and the Poole Harbour entrance which is experiencing much change with land falls just outside town and rising tides in now undefended Studland Bay.
The South West Coast Path 2013 guide has good colour pictures and handy bed and breakfast lists.
The paperback, £9.95, can be obtained from the South West Coast Path Association.
