Lodmoor Nature Reserve - Littlemoor - Preston

Starting from the Lodmore Nature Reserve in Weymouth, this enjoyable little walk incorporates wildlife habitat, lovely rolling downland, coast and a historical Roman temple site. Littlemoor and Preston are both well-populated communities on the edge of Weymouth, but with pleasant surrounds. There is a steep climb to see Jordan Hill Roman Temple, but once there, the views are wonderful and the White Horse cut into the hills above Osmington can be seen, of where it is said that the Grand Old Duke of York marched his men to the top and down again.

We enjoyed this walk but there's a bit too much on-road walking, unfortunately. Parking at Lodmore was about £1 an hour - an alternative would be to park at Goulds gardening centre (7) for free. They have a great cafe too so you can "pay" for parking by stopping here for a snack or meal. We broke the walk here for coffee. The Roman temple remains are signposted by a brown tourist sign, it's only maybe 50 yards off the main path. There's a path along the south of the country park which would be an alternative to walking along the (rather boring) seafront.
