historic site

A circular walk following the Walls of the Saxon market town of Wareham, including two short sections along the banks of the Rivers Frome and Piddle. The Walls are ancient earth ramparts surrounding the town, thought to have been built by Alfred the Great to defend the town from the Danes. There are a couple of stiles and the path alongside the River Piddle is very narrow with tall vegetation each side (if you wear shorts in summer be prepared for the nettles!) but otherwise the walk is easy to navigate and relatively flat.

A nice easy walk with pretty scenery. You may encounter cows in the meadow and it can be very muddy after rain.
