Eggardon Hill

2 miles (3 km)

Climb to this Iron Age hill fort and enjoy wonderful views over Marshwood Vale on this hilltop walk near Bridport.
The walk starts from the roadside parking area shown on the google street view link below. The footpath to the hill is just up the road from here. The hill fort is over 2500 years old and is rich in attractive plantlife. From the 252m (827ft) summit the views are wonderful with the English Channel visible on a clear day. It's a nice elevated path which takes you to the Bell Stone before returning the same way.
A local cycle route runs past Eggardon hill so you could follow this from nearby Powerstock to reach the hill. National Cycle Network Route 2 could also be followed from Bridport to Uploders before picking up the local route to Eggardon. It's a nice ride along a series of pretty country lanes.
You could also start the walk from Powerstock and follow good footpaths to the hill.
