About the Event
Length: 8 miles/12km
Total ascent: 600 metres
We have hiked Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, we hiked Studland Bay and Corfe Castle, now let's go to a less known part of this stunning coastline.
Worth Matravers was famous for its stone quarries since Roman times and men-made caves can be found along the coast, dug in those gorgeous cliffs shaped by Mama Nature next to this beautiful blue sea.
The location was used as a filming location for several episodes of Doctor Who and you will spot curious lines in the nearby hills called 'strip lynchets', those are the remains of medieval terraces used as a way to maximize farming and cultivation of the lands.
Our hike will take us through Spyway, where more than 100 fossilised tracks are preserved in a flat layer of rock at Keates Quarry, one of the places where south Purbeck’s tradition of stone production continues.
The footprints at Keates Quarry were probably made by brachiosaurs, a type of dinosaur from the group known as the sauropods, which included the largest land animals that ever lived.
Long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs like this could reach 50 tonnes, or five times the weight of a modern elephant, and measure more than 25 metres from nose to tail.
The fee is non-refundable, but you may resell and we can try to find someone to take your place once all seats are sold.
