PLEASE NOTE - NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US ON ANY OF OUR WALKS - BUT PLEASE REFER TO TO THE ADVICE ABOVE, AND THE INDIVIDUAL WALK BOOKING REQUIREMENTS, THANK YOU.

After two or three 'taster' walks, which we hope you will enjoy, you will be encouraged to join, due to insurance requirements.

Please check the Ramblers Home Page for regular updates.


The North Dorset area covers Evershot in the west of the County to Shaftesbury in the east, and Blandford Forum in the south, but walks take place in any part of Dorset, as well as South Somerset and SW Wiltshire.

The North Dorset Group aims to provide two walks each week, one midweek on Wednesdays, and one on Sundays. The distance for either ranges between 6 and 12 miles, with the occasional longer walk.  We try to provide walks with 'added interest' when possible, and take part in path clearance work as the occasion arises.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to initiate a trial of monthly  'shorter walks' which had been planned for Saturday mornings, to  provide walks under 5 miles. However, there are local Walking for Health walks, run in conjunction with the Ramblers, which you might find of interest.
