Chine Road, 12pm

Walks marked with PLW are pub lunch walks, starting time 10.30 a.m.

These start and finish at the pub. Lunches can be obtained at the pub. Walks finish at approximately 12.30. There is no organised walk to follow in the afternoon

All other walks start at 11.00 a.m. exactly.

The map reference/start point is shown.
Walkers should arrive suitably equipped (walking boot/waterproof clothing etc), unfortunately dogs are not permitted. Walkers should bring a packed lunch (except Pub Lunch Walks).

H, or the number of them, is the leader's assessment of the gradients to be met on the walk. They do not refer to the number of hills. CP = Car Park

The walks are an opportunity to see some of the more out of the way places in our beautiful county of Dorset with a very friendly group of people.

For more details please contact either
Mrs Valerie Hunt 01202 431956 Secretary or Mr Spence Coaker 01202 510271 Chairman
