Event description
Discover how unseen geology beneath our feet dictates and influences the landscape we see today on this guided walk.

About this Event

Offering a unique perspective on the South Dorset Ridgeway through the eyes of artist Amanda Wallwork and geologist Sam Scriven who both adore what’s under our feet as much as what we can see above.

This circular walk from the picturesque, monastic village of Abbotsbury follows one of the routes in our specially commissioned Field Guide series commissioned for the South Dorset Ridgeway Project. Highlighting how the landforms, soil, plants, wildlife and early human intervention – all relate to the rocks below the surface, whilst taking in stunning views of the Jurassic Coast, Abbotsbury Hillfort and St Catherines Chapel.

LANDSCAPES FOR LIFE FESTIVAL 21 – 29 September 2019

It’s been 60 years since almost half of Dorset became an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a ‘natural health service’ for all to enjoy. We’re inviting you to join in the celebrations and get some landscape in your life all the year round, not just the summer!

Join artists, story-tellers, wildlife experts, geologists, farmers, archaeologists to uncover what makes the landscape so outstanding. With a packed programme of walks, talks and have-a-go sessions have something for all interests, ages and abilities.

And help us celebrate our ‘national moment’ at our special picnic on Saturday 21 September.
