This August we are delighted to launch two new walking maps and an accompanying field guide to the Ridgeway, produced by local artist Amanda Wallwork, a renowned painter whose captivating work draws on the themes in Dorset's landscape.

Amanda has been busy over the summer drawing and painting a series of new maps for the Ridgeway, the first two of the series of six are now ready to publish.  The maps are based on hand drawn, original artwork but are also geographically correct.  All maps are designed with a specific purpose and with these our aim is to highlight the rich landscape heritage of the Ridgeway, so archaeology, geology, old routeways and local place names take centre stage.  The self-guided walking routes have also been chosen with this in mind - and cracking views!

The maps will be distributed through various local outlets and are currently available at Dorchester and Bridport Tourist Information Centres, but will be circulated more widely as more become available.  In the meantime, if you can't wait to get your hands on a pack email james.sharpe@dorsetcc.gov.uk and we will post you one.

Alternatively the maps and field guide can also be downloaded as pdf from our website.
