Danger on Rings Hill, Isle of Purbeck
Danger on Rings Hill, Isle of Purbeck
The coastal footpath northwest from Worbarrow Tout to the Flower's Barrow hillfort on Rings Hill is incredibly steep, and its course is defined by yellow marker posts - the area within the markers is checked by the MOD before the Range Walks are opened to the public. There are occasional friendly reminders like the one on this sign. The great chalk spine of Purbeck meets the sea at Worbarrow Bay. In the distance other peaks on the ridgeway can be seen: Whiteway Hill and Povington Hill. On the right is a smaller ridge which falls away on the far side as Gad Cliff.
