Bindon Hill Fort, West Lulworth

4.6
#9 of 10 in Nature in Dorset
Bindon Hill is an extensive Iron Age earthwork enclosing a coastal hill area near Lulworth Cove in Dorset, England.
The Hill is located about 19 kilometres west of Swanage, about six kilometres south west of Wareham, and about 17 kilometres south east of Dorchester.
Bindon Hill is only accessible when the Lulworth Ranges are open to the public. It can be reached by a short walk from West Lulworth, or alternatively via the South West Coast Path from Lulworth Cove. The ranges are owned by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and is part of the Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV) Gunnery School. The ranges, which are more than 2830ha, lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and stretch along the Jurassic Coastline between Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge. Visitors are advised to keep to official footpaths and abide to local site notices, because tanks and Armoured vehicles are used in this area. Safety warnings about explosives and unexploded shells are posted nearby by the MoD and there is a flashing warning lamp situated on the hill, which is illuminated when the ranges are in use.

  • Only open when the Tank firing ranges are closed. Well worth the climb up. Various options when you reach the point to continue your walk  more »
