Dorset is rich in history and evidence of this unique historic past can still be found in Dorset’s villages and towns today. Using the signs that we see today in the built environment, and the landscape, we can begin to piece together enticing stories of what life was like for those living in the past.
Walks around the unique and varied towns and villages
Using these guides, created by the Stepping into Nature project, you’ll get a better feel of the place and understand what makes it unique.
These walks are located across all of Dorset and are designed for those without a rich knowledge in history but would like to know a little more about the area. Old photos are used, often from postcards, to see what has and hasn’t changed over the past century or so.
We recommend 1 hour 30 mins to complete these walks but this allows for lots of time to sit and enjoy the surroundings on route. All walks avoid steep hills and difficult to walk areas.
