The South Dorset Ridgeway is a fantastic place to go walking in Dorset. Here are some of the best routes for you to immerse yourself in this remarkable landscape, with original artwork developed by renowned artist Amanda Wallwork as well as a highly informative field guide to the South Dorset Ridgeway landscape to enrich your visit, also produced by Amanda to accompany the walks and to enjoy in your own time. 

A selection of suggested walks are shown on the map in red, with corresponding map numbers for the more detailed maps that have been produced.

The first of those maps and the Field Guide are available to download on this page below and the remaining maps will follow shortly.

A limited number of high quality printed map & guide packs have been distributed to Tourist Information Centres so you may be able to pick one up there, or you can email us to request one by post - but only while stocks last!  

For a printed copy of the Field Guide and Maps, please email Kate Townsend, Dorset AONB Project Support kate.townsend@dorsetcc.gov.uk
