The unique South Dorset Ridgeway
Hidden in the hills between Dorchester and Weymouth lies a remarkable landscape, the South Dorset Ridgeway. Not just an ancient trackway but a ridge of high land that has attracted people for thousands of years – to celebrate life and bury their dead.
Experts tell us that this ridge of land is as important as Stonehenge and Avebury for the scale of monuments and what they tell us of life in the past, but still remains one of the UKs best kept secrets!
The ridgeway is not only steeped in history but has some incredible views and walks.
