Situated on a headland west of Swanage in the Isle of Purbeck, Worth Matravers, with its central village pond, has become one of the ‘picture postcard’ villages of the area. Beautifully-maintained, limestone houses line its streets, while the surrounding farmland provides unspoilt countryside views.
Nearby, opportunities for exploring the area’s rich history abound. On the cliffs approximately a mile from the village is Winspit, an old quarry made famous as a filming location for several television programmes. At St Aldelm’s Head sits the Norman chapel of Saint Alhelm and a monument commemorating the development of radar at RAF Worth Matravers, one of the Chain Home radar stations during WWII.
Worth Matravers is a picturesque collection of limestone cottages and farmhouses centred around a village green complete with duckpond. The village, situated just west of Swanage, is close to the dramatic limestone cliffs that form part of the South West Coast Path and the UNESCO Jurassic Coast. Within easy walking distance are the rocky, unspoilt beaches of Winspit, Seacombe and Chapman’s Pool, all suitable for bathing, as well as the most southerly tip of the Isle of Purbeck, St Aldhelm’s Head. Though small, Worth Matravers has a strong sense of community and still retains a post office, a village shop, a craft centre and a pub.
Today, Worth Matravers is best known for The Square and Compass, its 18th Century, Grade II listed public house, famous for its live music and homemade pasties and pies.
