Branscombe Walk

Branscombe Walk

Walking from Beer to Branscombe along the South West Coast Path is a fine experience and this is the rewarding view as your reach your destination. Part of the Jurassic coast, the limestone cliffs turn to sandstone and many landslides affect this area continually. Branscombe hit the national news on the 18th January 2007 when the large container ship MSC Napoli was beached near here to enable the salvage of the cargo. It was beached following serious structural failure, amidst fears she would not reach nearby Portland.
