Well after the weather of the last week or so you’ll definitely need your boots for this one, it’s a 7 mile round walk through prime Dorset countryside. From the birthplace of Christoper Wren, East Knoyle via it’s sibling West Knoyle, you’ll go through Nature reserves, get great views over the Blackmore vale all with some gentle up and down.
Parking can be found in the church car park at East Knoyle, following the route up towards Milton you’ll soon find yourself heading through the beautiful woods on Haddon Hill, and if you’re out this week you’ll get a wonderful view and smell of the bluebells. Next head to the top of Cleeve Hill with stunning views across the Blackmore Vale and head down towards West Knoyle church following the road for a bit. You then head up to The Middles before coming back to East Knoyle via the Mackintosh Davidson Nature Reserve.The homeward stretch towards East Knoyle can have a detour if you fancy to the pub on The Green.
The walk can be downloaded via Viewranger for your mobile phone and is FREE to download as all of our routes are.
