Directions

  1. Starting out from the village green in East Prawle, with the entrance to the café facing you, turn right along the lane leading out of the village.
  2. By the post box, turn left down the bridleway, then left again down the old green lane which passes through a gate and between fields towards the sea.
  3. Bear right at the finger post onto the coast path, signed for Prawle Point and follow the field edge path along the low cliff. In time you will see Prawle Point ahead, with the lookout station perched on top, and the aptly named Horse’s Head rock below.
  4. Continue along the cost path beyond Prawle Point. Turn right at the waymarker post above Maceley Cove, and then left after about 50 metres at the next waymarker, heading up hill and inland.
  5. Turn right following the blue waymarked arrow onto another ancient track. This leads you back to East Prawle via a final stretch of metalled country lane.
