A remote cottage in the lee of Quarry Hill.
The good, the bad, and the ugly!
Looking back to the iconic Colmer's Hill with it's topknot of trees (which were absent in the eighteenth century according to an engraving in the Ilchester Arms pub, where a welcome ale was taken after the walk).
Park Copse and Alder Moor.
A cute little lamb at Venn Farm.
A panoramic shot looking to the South from Henwood Hill. The wooded area to the right is Langdon Hill, which obscures Golden Cap from this point.
Up onto Hardown Hill.
The view from Hardown Hill above Morecombelake. The hills are, from right to left, Golden Cap, and Langdon Hill (which has two promontories).
Watch out for killer hens!
Onto the Coast Path now and Golden Cap lies ahead.
There were several of these paragliders about, taking advantage of the lovely weather.
The summit at Golden Cap, which at 191 metres (627 feet in old money) is the highest point on the south coast of England.
The view East from Golden Cap; it is just possible to see Portland Bill in the haze.
Down to Seatown at sea level and a female Mallard and her prolific brood.
Seatown with Golden Cap behind.
Renovations to the pub, The Anchor Inn, are well under way but are bound to have been delayed by the stormy weather of the winter months.
A paraglider takes in a great view.
On up again towards Thorncombe Beacon and the view inland - Colmer's Hill with it's topknot of trees is near the finish.
A pair of Cameroon cross lambs on the approach to Thorncombe Beacon.
The Beacon - used when a chain of them along the South Coast was lit to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of HM The Queen.
An old funfair caravan sits in a farmyard on the way back to the car.
A last look back towards the coast as the footpath leads down towards the finish.
