Come and join us in the beautiful county of Dorset, for a circular walk, Walking through the lovely village of Moreton and visiting the grave of Lawrence of Arabia.

A circular walk of about 10 miles.

Starting from Moreton station along roads, tracks and footpaths through the beautiful village of Moreton and the resting place of Lawrence of Arabia.

Moreton is also known for the windows of its church, St Nicholas, which were designed and engraved by Sir Laurence Whistler over a period of about 30 years. These replaced the original windows which were blown out by a bomb in WWII.

Then crossing the River Frome, through woodland, meadows and heath. There is usually plenty of wildlife to be seen even at this time of year.

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:

If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
