This walk is about one and a half miles and includes stunning views and some steps.
Starting from Marine Lake, take the stone steps and turn right to the view point with the round stone seat.
Turn left up more steps and continue to the lookout (1), then turn second left after a few yards and take the zigzag steps on your right to the top of the hill, passing the iron cross bollard (2).
Then bear right, downhill, leaving the Tennyson posts (3) to your left.
At the junction to the formal path turn sharp right and then left to follow the coast path to Wain’s Hill with its Iron Age earthworks (4) and World War 2 shelter (5).
Near the end of Wain’s Hill, leave the downhill formal path to take the zigzag woodland trail to your right, then follow the roadway to your left before turning left up to St Andrew’s Church and lych gate.
Turn right onto the formal path and take the right hand fork before turning left uphill through woodland. Follow this trail and return to Marine Lake via woodland steps (or keep straight on to return via the lookout).
