Download GPS FileGolden Cap from Seatown
The coast of West Dorset is far different from that a few miles further east. Gone are the white cliffs replaced by a mixture of other sedimentary rocks. At 191 metres, Golden Cap is the highest sea cliff in Southern England and 30 metres higher than Beachy Head. This short half day walk starts from the small village of Seatown, which is reached down a minor road from the village of Chideock on the A35 between Lyme Regis and Bridport.
