About the event

Story teller Martin Maudsley explores the folklore of the South Dorset Ridgeway and re-story’s this fantastical landscape.  An entertaining walk for all the family, starting at Black Down near the Hardy Monument, showing a whole new side to this ancient landscape – a ‘land of bone and stone’.

This event is part of our Landscape for Life Festival, celebrating 60 years of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We’ve asked some very special people who live and work in this rich and vibrant landscape to share the places they love with you. Join artists, story-tellers, wildlife experts, geologists, farmers, archaeologists to uncover what makes the landscape so outstanding… and find your own place to love along the way.
