Coast path on Gold Down

Here the coast path along the top of Gad Cliff descends Gold Down towards Worbarrow Bay. The area to the right of the fence is permanently out of bounds to the public, as part of the MOD's Lulworth Ranges. This part of the coast path is only open to the public on particular dates when the ranges are not firing and the walks have been checked and cleared of hazards. Lulworth Camp can be seen in the distance, towards the left of the photograph.
