We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This is a long, quiet and safe walk talking about 5 hours at gentle pace through mainly elevated farmland and woods. I think it is best done in 3 sections: Milborne to Milton Abbas; Milton Abbas to Winterborne Stickland and Winterborne Stickland to Blandford.It was poorly signposted so the Slow Ways app was very helpful.
The leg from Milborne St Andrew to Milton Abbas was mainly on easy grass terrain but we came across a field full of cattle beet which required a diversion-it was particularly poorly signposted at this point (just after crossing the A354 main road). It was clear that some farmers spent more time on maintaining the routes than others on this leg.
Milton Abbas to Winterborne Stickland goes through a lovely wood before dropping down to Stickland over variably maintained farm footpaths.Signposting is poor.
Winterborne Stickland to Blandford is an very pleasant walk along a well maintained path but does involve about 200m on a road and the chance of meeting some cows in pasture. The last part of the walk before getting in to Blandford involves negotiating a horse paddock. There is due to be a housing development here so the footpath will probably go through the housing estate in the future. The sign posting is poor.
This walk is not suitable for wheelchairs. It has a number of 'kissing' gates; some muddy and narrow sections. Overall it was not a muddy walk considering we did this during a very damp late autumn.
I would walk it again and would recommend it to others but it requires a reasonable level of mobility.
There are pubs in Milton Abbas and Winterborne Stickland and a cafe in Milton Abbas for refreshment.
