A series of eight round walks all starting from Sturminster Newton and taking in the surrounding area of the Blackmore Vale.

Come and explore the beautiful and varied landscape around this stunning part of North Dorset. These walking routes are mainly on Public Rights of Way, with some on paths with access permitted by the landowners. They vary in length from 1.5 to 5.5 miles.

The Sturminster Newton Walkabouts have been developed by Sturminster Newton Town Council in association with Dorset Council and are available from Sturquest Community Office, Sturminster Library, the Museum and Sturminster Mill or can be downloaded here.
