North Dorset Trailway

17 miles (27 km)

This splendid walking and cycling path runs along a dismantled railway line from Stalbridge to Spetisbury in Dorset.
The path has regular views of the River Stour following it for most of the route. You will pass through a series of pretty villages and towns including Sturminster Newton, Stourpaine and Blandford Forum before finishing at Crawford Castle at Spetisbury.
NB - at the time of writing the path is only complete from Strurminster Newton to Spetisbury - the section from Stalbridge to Spetisbury is under construction. Click here for updates.
