Bluebells, Wild Garlic and Wood Anemonies abounded in the mixed woodland sections and stunning views for most of the rest. No stiles meant a good pace was achieved despite there being 1000’ height differential over the 6 mile route. We even managed to find a bit of Dorset Nick hasn’t walked before!


Winterbourne Stickland is a very pretty to place to have a coffee break with plenty of benches and a lovely stream running through the village Green, at the Triangle. The dogs were first in to cool off on a warm day but try as I might none of the humans were tempted, not even the youngsters.


The return journey was achieved by traversing a very bright Rape field where a Skylark was put up by one of the dogs and gave us a lovely rendition from 50’ on high. Then on along the picturesque Jubilee Trail parts of which are undergoing some thinning out. A traditional coppicing method on the Sweet Chestnut trees, one man with a small chain saw and a more industrial method using heavy machinery on the Pine trees.


A very nice lunch was partaken at the Crown in Stickland. Good Food, Good Beer and Good Company.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
