Starting from the beach car park the walk goes west along the South West Coast Path then turns inland to Swyre. From Swyre the walk then follows a track and footpaths to Puncknowle then returns to West Bexington via The Knoll along minor roads and tracks.
The Knoll was once a Customs lookout post for watching for smugglers bringing in contraband from the continent. On a clear day, from here, you can get spectacular views in all directions.
West Bexington is signposted from the small village of Swyre on the B3157 between Abbotsbury and Bridport. Follow the road through West Bexington down to the car park next to the beach.
