The North Dorset Trailway

The Trailway is owned and managed by Dorset County Council. There are six access points from the village on to the trailway – Hopegood Close (by the Playing Field), Church Lane, Cereleton Park via Woodland Trust area, Park Hill, Charlton on the Hill, and from the A350 opposite Tannery Court. The Trailway follows the route of the former Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway which closed to traffic in 1966. It is suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding, and runs from Louse Lane in Spetisbury to Ward’s Drove in Blandford St Mary. At the site of the former station, off Damory Court Street in Blandford, you can re-join the trailway and follow it to Sturminster Newton. At Sturminster Newton and at Spetisbury you can join other footpaths and bridleways. See www.northdorsettrailway.org.uk
