Help connect Blandford Forum

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Blandford Forum’s Slow Ways.

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. Milton Abbas to Winterborne Stickland goes through a lovely wood before dropping down to Stickland over variably maintained farm footpaths.Signposting is poor....

On West Street cross the road, turn left and continue up the street passing the Drax Arms pub and local shop until you reach a road on your right signposted Butts Lane. Once safely across the road continue uphill on the hedge lined grass track, through a gap at the top and continue on a wide farm track until you reach a crossroads with a finger post to your left. Immediately after the farm track, leading away to your right from the farm buildings, you will see a footpath which continues ahead on the right-hand side of the road leading to Abbot’s Court House. Follow this path, pass the big house on your left and walk beside a field until you reach a farm track. Continue uphill on the gravel track, pass some farm buildings on your left (Goshen) and you’ve reached the end of the track. Now take a left and continue on a farm track until you reach a tarmacked road. Cross the road and walk in between the buildings by following the footpath until you come to a farm track (Littleton Drove). Turn right, pass Littleton Solar Farm on your left and continue downhill until you reach the A350 main road....
