Walks around West Parley


for a larger map please click here.

To see all the Rights Of Way covering West Parley and the types of paths they are eg foot / bridle etc please click here.
If you use a footpath and identify any problems, please report to Dorset County Council here.

We live in a wonderful place with access to some superb countryside. Here are some walks that have been tried and tested by local residents. If you have a great walk we have missed please get in touch.

Walks and maps can be found by clicking below, or on the main map icons. They are mostly flat, but some of the paths and fields can be muddy in wet conditions. Good walking practice: wear strong footwear, and carry a small backpack with some waterproof clothing, extra warm layer, sunhat, water and a mobile phone. A walking stick can be handy too!

The walks are based on Ordnance Survey maps OL22 - New Forest, OL15 - Purbeck and South Dorset (both scale 1:25000), and Landranger 195 Bournemouth and Purbeck (1:50000) for the bits west of Longham.
