About the event

A few steps down the lanes, on the northern fringe of Dorchester, takes you to what feels like a completely different world as you join the calm flowing River Frome as it meanders its way along the edge of the town.

Join AONB river experts Ian Rees and Rachel Janes for a relaxed stroll along the riverbank hearing what makes this river so special and why wildlife call this home. Subject to the weather there may also be opportunity to see some river dipping to get up close and personal with some of the smaller residents of the riverbed.

Suitable for All (12+)

NB: Route will follow paths, fields and in some places is uneven.
Distance approx. 1.5 miles
