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 5 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.
In 2021, a monthly 'shorter walks' programme will be trialled, on Saturday mornings, aiming to provide walks under 5 miles. These are planned to finish at or near a pub/cafe, with the option of a (self-funded) pub lunch, with the intention of being accessible by public transport. THIS WILL BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE, DEPENDANT UPON GOVERNMENT AND RAMBLERS GUIDANCE.
