About a mile from the village is Winspit, an old quarry on the cliffs. The quarry sits on the junction of the footpath from Worth Matravers with the South West Coast Path and makes a picnic spot like no other.

The Square and Compass
Today, The Square and Compass couples three tasks: it entertains long standing patrons, refreshes walkers and tourists and draws in music lovers. When the sun is shinning it’s great to sit outside and admire the amazing views across the sea, definitely a must visit when you come to Dorset.
