Stour Valley Summer

Heading north west, back into Shillingstone, after a 'summer evening cycle ride', along The North Dorset Trailway. Before it was closed in the 1960's the Somerset and Dorset Railway (S & D), was sometimes referred to as the 'Slow & Dirty'. Despite this, the actual geographical location of the North Dorset Stour Valley section, made it one of the most picturesque railway lines in the South West of England. Since its' 'rebirth' as a trailway, open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders, its' sympathetic and ongoing development, with regard for the surrounding environment and wildlife, has made this all too evident.
