This was the eigth stage of 10 days walk along the Jurassic Coast section of the South West Coast Footpath between Exmouth and Poole. We moved base camp down to Langton Matravers to do the final stages of the walk. By now we had come to the unfortunate conclusion that the section through the military range was not going to be feasable due to the constraints of public transport. Therefore it was decided to continue from as near as we could get to the military range from basecamp. Then on the final day we could drive into the military range to see what we had missed.
