Wessex Ridgeway

The Wessex Ridgeway Trail is a long distance route, with a multi-use trail of approximately 93 kilometres (58 miles), starting at Tollard Royal on the Dorset/Wiltshire border and finishing near the coast by Lyme Regis.  

The walking, cycling and horse riding trail offers vistas across the county and breathtaking views far beyond. The majority of the route straddles a long chalk ridge but in places is broken up by small rounded hills and secluded valleys and forms part of the Great Ridgeway, an ancient highway that was once an important trading route between the Devon and Norfolk coasts.

Today this ancient highway provides the backbone to several recreational trails in southern England.
