Mileaters Walk from West Bexington

DSCN1173
On a mid August Monday with fresher air and just a little rain threatened, thirteen Mileaters and three dogs did a circular walk from West Bexington through Puncknowle. After a sturdy climb from the coastal village and across the busy B3157 we took our first breather at The Knoll. Built around 1800 as a coastguards’ Look Out and signal station it offers the most magnificent views of the sweep of Lyme Bay from Portland to Start Point in one direction, and inland over the West Dorset hills in another.

The second break was at St Mary’s Church in the village of Puncknowle with its Norman chancel arch and 14th century wall paintings. Rosie also pointed out the double font and the damage to the rim where a locked cover which once protected the consecrated water within had been forced off during the Reformation.

Leaving Puncknowle we found our way through maize fields and then down through Swyre to cross the road again and descend across fields to the coast. The final section was a trudge along the beach to the carpark where the weary walkers were welcomed by the happy sight of Arend and a table set up with food and coolboxes of beer on the beach. Everyone contributed generously to the picnic and decided that it made a refreshing change from winding up at a pub. The rain stayed away.
