Happy New Year

We are all hoping for better times in 2021 and hope you are keeping well.

For those who enjoy getting out in the fresh air for exercise we have two trail/road routes to share with you. 

The White Horse loop is approx 14 miles long and the Springhead circular is approx 6.1m (10km).



We hope you have fun - we aren't running this as an event, just sharing a route we like walking with friends. There are some road crossings, cows/sheep, mud, steep bits and sometimes inclement weather so please take care and stick to the footpaths/bridleways, shut gates and wear appropriate clothing and make sure you are fit enough for the distance and elevation. 

We would love to see your photos of the routes, so please feel free to share on our facebook page.

Facilities (subject to government Covid restrictions)

There are public toilets at Overcombe corner Preston and Osmington Mills.

There are pubs at Osmington Mills, the Springhead Sutton Poyntz, the Spice ship Preston, the Bridge Inn Preston. 

Fundraising for future publications

Our publication Village Voices last year is still proving popular and we will be keen to produce more publications about the village's history in future. Once the pandemic has settled down we would also like to hold some more information evenings/talks.

We are keen not to go cap-in-hand to people but if you would like to support us (at no extra cost to yourselves) and you use Amazon, then please follow this link and we can receive 0.5% of what you spend paid directly into the charity bank account.

The funds raised will be used to pay for publication costs.
