A circular walk through the Iwerne ('Yew-En') Valley and surrounding hills which offer magnificent scenery and a lot of ancient history, with two villages en route, one a feast of rural buildings and both with pubs. A possible short cut reduces the walk to 5.5 miles and 265 metres and includes the best of the hills, but not the better of the two villages.

What an amazing walk, taking in not one but two of Dorset's Iron Age hill forts! Of course that meant two steep climbs, but well worth it for the views. I appreciated the interesting snippets of history in the walking notes. Thanks Al for documenting it for us!

A fabulous walk on May 6th 2012. The carpet of cowslips on Hod Hill Fort is wonderful. Really recommend this walk
