For recreational and navigational purposes we recommend 'OS Explorer' Ordnance Survey Maps (at a scale of 1:25,000). These maps can be purchased from Tourist Information Centres, main book sellers and stationers. It is advisable to buy an OS Explorer map if you are planning to do any walking, cycling or riding in Dorset. OS Explorer maps show public rights of way and other public access routes and areas.
