SWC Free Walk 76, Purbeck Way East, Wareham to Swanage.9/8/09.

Following the Purbeck Way from Wareham (though this walker got the bus to Corfe and started filming from there), this 13 mile walk passes the ruined castle there before following the '9 Barrows Ridge' to the sea. The ridge offers great views over Studland, Bournemouth Bay and Poole Harbour. Likewise, at 'Old Harry Rocks' at The Foreland. Then, it's a steep descent back into Swanage for a bus back to Wareham (though I now hear that the train service might be resumed, austerity cuts allowing...). (Mobile phone quality).
