Walk Description:

A lovely walk that takes us along the meadow stream behind Stinsford village. We will walk past the church yard which holds that heart of Thomas Hardy and his parents. We will then stop at Kingston Maurward cafe for a drink. Then back through the meadows up to the car park. 

There are a few hills but ones that are easy to take at your own time, plus two stiles to go over and a few gates to go through.

Thorncombe Car Park cost £1 per hour. There will be toilets here and at Kingston Maurward.
