For those who fancy a walk…

Feversham Arms - walking on mud

Why not discover Dorset’s countryside on foot this season? We are lucky in Dorset to have stunning countryside with almost 3,000 miles of public rights of way to explore. Walking is a great way to see the varied landscape of Dorset, from countryside vistas to towns, villages and coastal paths.

There is a small booklet detailing a number of short and relatively easy walks in the area, (unsurprisingly starting and/or ending at the local hostelry in Puncknowle).  Originally published to support the fundraising activities of the erstwhile Crown Puncknowle Fundraisers, it can now be seen or downloaded from HERE.  If you would like to download/print the booklet, then use this LINK – but please be patient, it is a large file.
(If you feel it’s worth it, perhaps you could make an extra donation to your favourite charity!)

There are, of course, many other short and long distance walking routes in Dorset’s countryside to explore.


Footpaths, bridleways and byways in the vicinity of the three villages.
