Cirencester Ramblers

April 9th, Swanage to Bournemouth (Away Weekend)

44 ramblers enjoyed a weekend away in Bournemouth and on the Saturday, 41 went by coach to New Swanage and walked along the cliff path up to Old Harrys Rocks to see the wonderful views of the Isle of Wight and the surrounding area.  The walk dropped down to Studland Beach where coffee and lunch was taken.

The party then split with the long route 12 mile ramblers setting off to the Studland Ferry and then along the beach passing the houses on Sandbanks some of the most valuable property in the world, finishing at Bournemouth Pier.  

The shorter walk of 6 miles continued to Studland Ferry and finished by taking the service bus back to Bournemouth.
