A lovely walk over restored heathland on Little Haldon. Best done early, or in the evening.If you check the link and get some history, you might want to see if you can get a picture! Here was the scene of the murders of lonely travellers.
Lidwell Chapel History (Updated link)
Park at N50 34.589 W003 31.707 as this gives a shorter walk along the busy road than from the car park. The golf course was once an aerodrome. You will walk across Little Haldon, home to skylarks in the spring and summer. Once you have found the chapel, go through the field gate into the chapel area. You will need the clue as the tree cover is too great for GPSr. I have moved the cache since it was trashed: it is now well hidden and is a well stocked ammo box. The cache is just outside the chapel railings. Take a look at the 13th century chapel and holy well,just through the gate. You WILL need wellies or boots to look at the chapel as the natural spring (no doubt the original inspiration for the siting of the chapel (and whatever pagan site was there previously) makes the area boggy. There was a more natural cache inside the chapel, where a pheasant had it's nest of eggs (May 14th). I dont know who was more surprised, her or me when I nearly trod on it. The views across to the Jurassic Coast are lovely.
