Dorset

Welcome to the Strolling Guide to Dorset

Is there any county in England with more varied and different types of scenery? Heathland, Downland, Limestone uplands, Clay vales and some of the finest coastal scenery anywhere in the country.

In human terms, it also stretches between the lively Poole/Bournemouth conurbation and remote villages that have not yet been fully suburbanised.

Not best known for its industrial remains, there is nevertheless plenty to see: Clay Mines, Quarries, the Rope Walks of Bridport, and plenty of old Mills.
