Geocache Description:

Lewesdon Hill, Broadwindsor, Dorset.

Pilsdon Pen, 2 miles W of here, was long thought to be the highest point in Dorset. However, Lewesdon has been resurveyed at 279m and is now the county top. Unlike its neighbour, it is cloaked in ancient woodland and the steep ascent to the summit is through giant beech trees. In spring, the wood is covered with a vast sea of bluebells. Buzzards can be watched hunting in nearby fields and ravens are occasionally seen.

Most visitors park on the verge at Buck’s Head (N50 48.080, W002 47.810) on the B3162. Take the farm road bearing 290 degrees and at the brow of the hill, turn right onto a bridleway. After about 40m, take the bridleway on your left climbing north. Be careful of slippery tree roots in damp weather.

After a National Trust sign, there is a final steep climb. You emerge at the SE end of the summit ridge (N50 48.438, W002 47.960) where the path divides. Take the left fork. Continue to the end of the wooded summit where you'll find another NT sign. Now you're very close - good luck! The container is a cliplock box in a slightly dilapidated camo bag.
