Overview

From the High Street in Wool, the walk follows the Hardy Way towards Bindon Abbey and then on to East Stoke Fen Nature Reserve. We return skirting the edge of the army ranges before crossing Coombe Heath Nature Reserve and following the Hardy Way back to our start point.

Whilst the walk is generally flat, there are some short inclines. Walking boots are recommended and please bring waterproofs. The sections close to the River Frome may be waterlogged. There will be some sections of road walking.

Please check our website the evening before the walk as the walk may be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.

We will stop for a short coffee break, but as this is a morning walk, there will not be a formal lunch stop.
