Overview

'The five Beaminster Hills Circular Walks were created by the Beaminster Ramblers as their millennium project in 2000. They were published twice as pamphlets and have been so successful  that they have begun to run out. It has been decided to put the walks on to the World Wide Web to increase their availability. The maps are the same as in the pamphlets, but the descriptions of the walks have been updated.'

Overview

'We do as much walking as we can and aim to average at least 5 miles a day. We walk 3 miles to get our flour and 6 miles to get our eggs and have even done a 30 mile round trip to go to an evening theatre performance. We enjoy walking to pubs and decided to see how many pubs we could walk to and back from, starting from home. We have now done 70 different pubs, one at a time ... We are at the stage now where many of the pubs are 30 miles away and involve camping overnight. We are trying to get the tally up to 100 ...'

Overview

'Rather than take you out in a big group Chris specialises in individual family fossil hunting walks at Charmouth, Dorset; these are available most days throughout the year. The advantage is that your family gets all the attention and benefit from intensive quality time instead of being part of a large group. The walks are ideal for children from 5 years and up ...'

Distance (miles)212
Overview

'Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) set most of his novels and many poems in Wessex, once an ancient kingdom of southern England. The heart of Hardy's Wessex is Dorset and the Hardy Way is a journey through some of the most unspoilt parts of this beautiful county, extending from the coast then inland to the timeless Cranborne Chase on the Wiltshire border ... We believe the Guidebook written by Margaret Marande and updated in 2015 is essential not just to follow the route, but because the many excerpts from Hardy's work provide an extra dimension of enjoyment to discovering Dorset and his magical Wessex.'
