Whilst staying within the county boundary at all times, the route uses the boundary only as a reference and does not follow it slavishly, as that would mean missing out on some wonderful walking. Nor does it delve into the heartland to explore all that Dorset has to offer, for to do that would turn this walk into one of epic proportions.'
