Dorset Walks: Sturminster Newton Walkabouts



From Dorset For You

"A series of eight round walks all starting from Sturminster Newton and taking in the surrounding area of the Blackmore Vale.

Come and explore the beautiful and varied landscape around this stunning part of North Dorset. These walking routes are mainly on Public Rights of Way, with some on paths with access permitted by the landowners. They vary in length from 1.5 to 5.5 miles. Each leaflet includes a clear OS map to follow as well as some points of interest to look out for along the way.

The Sturminster Newton Walkabouts have been developed by Sturminster Newton Town Council in association with Dorset County Council and are available from Sturquest Community Office, Sturminster Library, the Museum and Sturminster Mill or can be downloaded here".

Also of interest: a short cycle-ride

"As part of the travel plan for Hardy’s Birthplace Visitor Centre, DCC Rangers have installed way-markers along a simple cycle route from Dorchester to Higher Bockhampton. The route follows just over two miles of beautiful bridleway and quiet rural lanes. Bike racks are available beside the Visitor Centre. From there you can enjoy a walk through the unique woodland that inspired Thomas Hardy as a child".
