The North Dorset Trailway runs along the route of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway line and takes you through some picturesque villages of the Blackmore vale. The old railway line provides an ideal route for a Trailway as it links many of North Dorset’s towns and villages. There are four sections you can currently visit that take you through some of North Dorset’s spectacular countryside, towns and villages with views of Hambledon Hill and the meandering River Stour. The trail runs along a flat, surfaced 3 metre wide track suitable for push chairs, mobility vehicles, horses, bicycles and walkers.

Access to one of the Trailway sections is just outside the village so easily reachable.
