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. Can be muddy after wet periods and you may come across livestock in one field. 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.

The field as you walk near the Manor House is too muddy to get past unless you have boots on. Also there are cows in this field very close to the footpath. Just to let you know before you start this route. If there is a way to avoid this field that’d be helpful.

Directions excellent. NB track very muddy.
