Blackmore Vale - 10 Leisure Walks

Blackmore Vale - 10 Leisure Walks

by: Rodney Legg
The name Blackmore Vale sums up the historic character of this area, once a royal hunting ground - a "forest" for sport rather than trees. This undulating landscape of the River Stour and its main tributaries forms the heart of northern Dorset, below the escarpments of the Dorset Downs to the south and Cranborne Chase to the east.

Doyen of Dorset walkers Rodney Legg has chosen ten of his favourite walks in the area, all circular and ranging from 3 to 8 miles, and suitable for the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk. The walks reflect the many varied facets of the area; its people, its history, and its working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route. Clear route directions are provided together with sketch maps and the guide is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket.

The walk locations are:
Stour Provost and Fifehead Magdalen - 4 miles
Marnhull and Hinton St Mary - 7 miles
Lydlinch and Stock Gaylard - 5 miles
Fifehead Neville and Plumber Manor - 6 miles
Sturminster Newton and Cutt Mill - 6 miles
Fiddleford and Hammoon - 8 miles
Okeford Fitzpaine and Shillingstone - 6 miles
