Dorset 100

The Dorset group of the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) is delighted to be hosting the annual hundred mile challenge walk over the Bank Holiday weekend of 28th to 30th May 2016. Dorset is the county of Thomas Hardy, of his Egdon Heath, of ancient Iron Age hill-forts, drove roads and ridgeways, of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, thatched cottages and picture-postcard villages. We visit all of these on our walk. We hope that walkers, their families and friends will enjoy all that Dorset has to offer – including our warm hospitality.
