Colmers Hill, by Doug Chalk



It is no secret that my favourite place for walking is Thomas Hardy’s Wessex and here is an Index of just a few of the walks I have done.  I hope to add many more to it!

I have also walked in stages and several sections many times the Dorset Coastal path from Lyme Regis in the West to Studland in the East; explored the Sturminster Newton and Marnhull (or do I mean Marlott?) area  and know the footpaths around Dorchester, Stinsford and Bockhampton almost as well as those  I take when walking near Harlington, my home village .  This site also includes details of walking the Ridgeway National Trail  , Walking the Pilgrims’ Way,     in addition to my adventures along the South Downs Way and the Hertfordshire Way.  It is being continually updated as I explore further areas of our beautiful countryside.

The beautiful image of Colmer’s Hill is not mine but the work of Doug Chalk – check out his amazing work here.
