Directions

If coming from Dorchester towards Weymouth on the relief road leave at the roundabout signposted to Littlemoor and proceed past the garden centre on the left and then turn left into Coombe Valley Road. If coming from the west via Osmington approach the edge of Weymouth at Preston and turn right into Littlemoor Road and then first right into Coombe Valley Road. Once in Coombe Valley Road continue for just over half a mile and there is a break in the fence on the right hand side into the quarry area where you can park. Take care when leaving, the visibility to the right is very limited and cars come round the bend quite quickly!
