View Details

Golden Cap is the highest point on the south coast at 191m. It offers magnificent views at every compass point and on a clear day you can see across Lyme Bay to Dartmoor.

Golden Cap is a high, flat-topped hill of deep orange sandstone on the cliffs between Charmouth and Bridport, and is comprised of two ages of rock from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.  It is part of the  National Trust Golden Cap estate and has a rich variety of plants and animals.  On  the very top of Golden Cap is a simple memorial to the Earl of Antrim, chairman of the National Trust in the 1960s and 1970s.  Golden Cap is accessible from the two National Trust car parks at Langdon Hlil and Stonebarrow Hill.  Access to both of these is by single track lanes with passing places.
