The North Dorset Trailway (extended)

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.
