A Dorset landscape photographer is taking on one of the toughest coastal walking routes in the South West this September to raise money for the RNLI.

Matthew Wardle from Poole is stepping out on the South West Coast Path, walking the section from Sandbanks to Lyme Regis.

The notoriously hilly walk, which will take place over five days, is the equivalent of climbing Ben Nevis three times.

Along the way he will be taking photographs which he’ll be selling on his website to help raise money for his chosen charity. “I travel around the coast a lot with my photography so I see first hand the remarkable job the RNLI do. I have witnessed them out in the roughest seas saving lives, regardless of the risks that they put themselves under. For me these are real heroes.”
