A 3.5 mile circular pub walk from The Inn at Cranborne in Dorset. An undulating and rewarding walk across the ancient chalk downland of North Dorset. Good under foot with expansive views and an abundance of birdlife.

There are several slopes within the route but the walk is easy to navigate, follows well-made tracks and there are no stiles and just one gate. Approximate time 70 to 90 minutes.

The walk starts and finishes at The Inn at Cranborne which can be found on the corner of Wimborne Street and Castle Street in Cranborne. Cranborne is north of Wimborne and is accessed via the B3078. Approximate post code BH21 5PP.
