so Miss E and I tried out a ''short walk'' that was marked clearly on my map: i.e. from the church in Shipton Gorge back through some fields, curling onto the road for a few more paces along the road back to our cottage.
We could see the sea in the distance but nothing of Shipton Gorge so we ended up coming back exactly the way we came.
I found a superb wool shop nearby.
Our reward came from a marvellous bakery in Bridport: we were so hungry we ate before photos could be taken:
vegetable muffins with sweet potato and parsnip, Health Slice which had oats, grated fresh apple and sultanas and was very ''wet'' to eat, cheesy puff pastry confections and also THIS:
ALMOND AND APRICOT FLAPJACK!
Address, should you ever come this way.....YUMMEEEE, very soft and moist almost cakey texture, nit hard or crunchy at all. Very oaty though.
