The Land of Bone & Stone

The South Dorset Ridgeway is a very special place, not least for the huge amount of ancient history still to be found here. It holds so many enigmatic Bronze Age burial mounds, dramatic Iron Age hill forts and other remains from pre-history that experts say it is on a par with the landscape of Stone Henge.

And yet very few people know about it.

The South Dorset Ridgeway forms a part of the South West Coast Path long distance walking trail, sits on the world renowned rocks and looks over the Jurassic Coast, supports fascinating wild plants & animals, has rich cultural connections such as Thomas Hardy and provides some of the best British produce.

This is why we call it the Land of Bone & Stone.  Landscape, Archaeology, Geology and the natural world.
