The afternoon will include a walk in the surrounding landscape and a tour of the ancient sites, taking in Neolithic long barrows, crossing the Dorset Cursus and finishing the day at the restored henges of Wyke Down.

So bring stout shoes, clothes suitable for all weathers, a packed lunch and an enquiring mind! (Please note, this outing is not suitable for those with walking difficulties). Full details of  the day on our website. Own transportation essential.
