This walk was originated by Colin Campbell. Walkingworld would like to say a big thank you to Colin for all his superb contributions to the website over the years.

The walk starts and finishes near the magnificent tree-lined avenue at Pamphill in the NT property of Kingston Lacy. You are on NT land as you descend from here to the river and along its beautiful banks to Eye Bridge and then also on the other side almost to Lambs Green. You are on part of the Stour Valley Way and at Lambs Green you have the pleasure of walking right along the middle of an A road, although A road it is no longer, but rather now a quiet country lane and footpath. You meet the river again, then come back across it on another branch of the Stour Valley Way, enjoying the views as you do so. Next you are in Wimborne, moving along East Street and King Street. Here, the town is well worth a visit, most of it just the other side of the minster which you will be passing and naturally, the minster itself has to be seen and the model town too! You leave Wimborne still on the Stour Valley Way, through allotments and onto riverside meadows. You are back on NT land and stay on it even when you join Vine Hill, a road leading you up the only thing like a real slope in the whole journey. Don't miss the Vine Inn if you can avoid it and do take in the views of the river and cottages from a spot reached by a short gravel road on the left, almost opposite the Vine Inn.

We also did this lovely walk in September 2011 & had trouble with the barbed wire fence. The nettles along that part of the route are also troublesome as they are plentiful & very tall. My dog really enjoyed himself except for the yappy little terrier between 11 - 12 who seemed to think he owned the road & was free to do what he likes.

Walked in mid September 11. At point 4, the farmer has put a section of electric fence across the path, so you have to go under it. As you turn to approach Poplar Farm, a barbed wire fence now blocks the path. This has been partially pushed down towards the ground - presumably by frustrated walkers- but it still needs navigating with care.

I recently took over maintenance of this walk from Colin Campbell and walked it in May 2011. I made a couple of minor updates to bring it up to date. It's a most enjoyable walk and I can recommend it.
