pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Black Bear in Wool. A satisfying mid Dorset walk with a bit of everything. Lanes, fields, streams, meadows, woods, views and wildlife, ending with an amble past charming cottages of old Wool. The walk follows a mixture of lanes/roads and paths across farmland (including pastures with livestock). There are several gates on route plus six stiles. Approximate time 80 to 100 minutes.

Nice enough walk - slight detour needed around fields with bull, cows and calves in it :-)

Not very sociable as a lot of road and no pavements. Nice pub at the end though.

A lot of road and the paths little trod. Last third very scenic.
