Au programme

This is a fun and adventurous exploration of the countryside and coastline of Purbeck. It is made all the more exciting by venturing forth after dark though no need to be afraid as this adventure makes being out at night fun and enjoyable.
Our adventure starts in the quarrying village of Worth Matravers where we explore the old church and graveyard before heading off the beaten track via the ancient priests way. I can take you to a quarry where a series of amazing dinosaur footprint fossils can be seen by torchlight (or moonlight!); at night we can imagine that the dinosaurs are still lurking in the shadows before we discover the secretive Seacombe Valley.
This valley is a real wildlife haven and depending on the time of year we can often spot deer, foxes, badgers, bats and even glow worms. To help us spot the wildlife we will play some great listening, watching and silent walking games.
Finally we reach the sea and scramble down to the wave-washed rocks of Seacombe Cove, a past haunt of smugglers and still inhabited by the ghosts of shipwrecked sailors. If we are lucky and the sky is clear of clouds then the stargazing is amazing as we are miles from any street lights and light pollution.
From here we retrace our steps up part of the valley before the final steep hill back to our starting point in the village where The Square and Compass welcomes us.

Hello! I am Barry Cullimore and I have lived on and taught about the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site for the past 24 years. I am a qualified teacher and outdoor education professional with a degree in Geology and Geography. I hold the UK Summer Mountain Leader Award and am trained in outdoor first aid.

I have walked and run along the full 93 miles of the World Heritage Site on numerous occasions (sometimes at night!); in my opinion it is the most beautiful part of coastline in the UK. I am a keen fossil hunter, bird watcher and botanist and know facts and amazing stories about all the places, plants, animals, rocks and fossils that can be found along the coast.

I can help you get the most from your time in Dorset and look forward to joining you in exploring the Jurassic Coast soon.

Le lieu

This adventure takes you away from everyday life to discover secret coves, hidden valleys and wildlife viewing spots. The whole time is spent in darkness adding mystery and excitement to the walk, but also offering a much greater chance of spotting some amazing wildlife.
We finish off at the Square and Compass, a unique 18th century pub with its own museum of local curiosities, where we can relax and share tales of our adventures.

A magical experience for all the family in a beautiful location. Barry really engaged the children with wonderful stories of the local area and characters, and games to keep them silent for wildlife spotting. If only we could book Barry to guide us throughout the UK!
