Sheet number OL15 in the OS Explorer map series is the ideal map for exploring the Purbeck coast and South Dorset from Poole to Bridport and north to Dorchester. It also includes Weymouth, Wareham and Swanage.
Covering an expansive Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there’s a wealth of tranquil countryside and crashing coastline for you to explore. The peninsula of Purbeck is made up of 60 square miles of sculpted shores, steep cliffs and sandy beaches – a perfect location for all kinds of walking, from gentle ambling, to serious tramping.
If you’re up to the challenge, why not cycle the 47-mile trail around Purbeck? Take the leisurely option with a week-long winding trip, or set off at a serious sprint, completing the course in one or two days.
Find fossils and a medley of marine life at Kimmeridge Bay. The flats here provide the perfect platform for keen ecologists to explore the natural environment. Explore the woodlands and heath on Brownsea Island for the chance to spot red squirrels, Sika deer, kingfishers and oystercatchers. Other Jurassic Coast highlights include: West Bay along to Chesil Beach, Portland, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Worbarrow and Durlston Head.
