About the North Dorset Trailway
The North Dorset Trailway Network is a Charity that is dedicated to extending and improving the Trailway, which is largely made up of sections of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway which used to link Bristol, Bournemouth and Christchurch.
The old railway went through a large number of agricultural villages and towns where there were stations every few miles.
The North Dorset Trailway now extends from Sturminster Newton to Spetisbury, providing an off road trail for walkers, cyclist etc. The opening of the latest section, between Stourpaine and Blandford, proved to be a triumphant day with hundreds of people attending by various means of transport.
Whilst you are travelling along new section, between Stourpaine and Blandford, you may come across some mysterious sculptures next to a bench. Click here to find out about them.
Judy Clegg has written a wonderful poem about the trailway. Click here to read it.
