ONE of the most iconic landmarks on the Jurassic Coast is set to steal the limelight tonight on televisions across the country.

Presenter and walking enthusiast Julia Bradbury returns to Dorset and the Purbeck coast with a camera crew for a new series of the popular ITV programme Britain’s Best Walks.

Donning her walking boots once again to share stunning walks, the former BBC Countryfile presenter is returning to Dorset to trail Old Harry Rocks chalk stacks on Studland for episode one of the new series, airing tonight at 8pm.

Julia’s trail offers up views to the Needles on the Isle of Wight, along the ancient Dorset coastline and inland over the Purbeck countryside.

Taking in golden sandy beaches, the dramatic history of the bay and heathlands, the new series with six episodes is documenting the presenter’s personal favourite walks.

Julia said: “It’s always a great feeling to tog up and get the walking boots back on.

“In this series I get to explore some of our most distinctive landscapes and show off the enormous variety of our countryside.

“For a small island we sure have a lot to boast about.

“Walking is for everyone, so I’m hoping to show viewers some of Britain’s best in this series and inspire them to get out there and have fun.”

Julia has been down to the Jurassic Coast many times throughout her filming career.

For the last series, she visited Golden Cap and Colmer’s Hill near Bridport and said it was ‘a pleasure to come back every time’.

She has also visited Weymouth and Portland for a previous walking and history programme.

In episode one of Britain’s Best Walks, Julia takes in scenery of Old Harry Rocks as well as visiting Agglestone Rock, Godlingston Heath and Ballard Down near Swanage in Dorset.

Before packing up for the day, the cast and crew visited The Pig on the Beach country house hotel in Studland too.
