    Think that this old building still stands here. Lo and behold it is fantastic. The Hill up to the Chapel is fairly steep and long, so there is ample opportunity to sit in the grass and look down on the prospect of Abbotsbury many times:-) Remember, however, something to sit on, as there are many sheep on the spot. There can be absolutely quiet and windless when going up the Hill and approaching the chapel. You go around the chapel-on sea side-so you will experience havvinden, which can be pretty strong. Inside the chapel there are quiet, even if you can hear the wind outside. The chapel can be seen from the sea and has been an important landmark for seafarers. Take a look at the big stone, as the Chapel is built of. Imagine having to tow them.

  • Extremely simple with a bare earth floor inside but charming in its simplicity. There are good views of the Fleet Lagoon and Swannery from outside and it is a good place to starwatch at night because there isvery little light pollution there
  • Beautiful part of the country, Abbotsbury is a stunning village.
  • Strangely it looks bigger from a distance than it really is. Worth the walk to get there, the Church is beautiful and the views are stunning
  • Up the hill, your walk will be rewarded with spectacular scenery.
  • This was an unearthly experience. Set in the beautiful rolling Dorset countryside, inside was filled with the echoing coos of white doves. A beautiful, strange experience
