Mileaters 28th December 2017 Walk

Call it luck call it skill, call it what you will, but the 28th of December 2017 was the best day by far over the Christmas period for a fat and alcohol burning walk over our beautiful local countryside.

There is something very enjoyable and slightly puritanical about walking after Christmas excess and we all really enjoyed it. Conversations flowed, laughter abounded and we even saw an eagle (or was it a buzzard?).

The walk itself was standard stuff, up the lane past Coolit garage, onto and along the ridge and back down past Geralds’ vineyard, (where he was busy working), to finish with a very nice lunch at our village pub.


Local folks, local walk and local pub, brilliant weather, what could be better?

The Mileaters

The village walking group began some 25 years ago with the aim of walking the Dorset Coast Path, in sections, from the Devon border to Sandbanks. Subsequently the reverse route from Sandbanks to Devon has been undertaken.

We are a friendly group of local residents, ex-residents, and colleagues from the area, who meet on a fortnightly basis to enjoy the diversity of the wonderful Dorset countryside. We take it in turns to lead a walk with most members being allotted a fortnight's slot twice a year. The choice of distance, location, and day within that fortnight is at the discretion of the fortnightly leader, but walks (anywhere in Dorset) are usually between 4 and 8 miles. 

Walk details are distributed by email. A picnic lunch is often carried in the Summer, but a pub lunch in the Winter is the norm - rehydration is de rigueur! Generally we meet on the Village Green at 10.00 a.m.
