How do I get there?

Use the coast path between Branscombe and Weston Mouth but also accessible via a footpath from Berry Barton Farm. All the remains are clearly visible from The South West Coast path, although there is no public access within the camp.

Branscombe can be accessed via the 899  Bus Service, alighting at the Fountain Head Inn for the nearest stop.
