'We are into walking, dining out, theatre, cinema, country pubs, barbecues, making friends and socialising. The group was called the Bournemouth Boghoppers 25 years ago when we took over from the original S.E. Dorset YHA Group. The nickname has stuck and has become our official title. We have no fixed age range but most of the members are in their forties, fifties & early sixties. We aim to have regular Sunday walks in the Purbecks, across Dorset and the New Forest. Please note that this group does not allow dogs on the walks. The walks are usually 7 to 10 miles. But we are not all about walking; we are very much a social group as well.'

Working for a Round Harbour Trail  'There are now five way marked linear walks around the harbour and a sixth that will be way marked shortly. Each walk is described by a leaflet that can be bought from local tourist information offices or downloaded from the walks page of this web site where there are also another 13 circular walks highlighting some of the key points of the trail.

'The Definitive Map records the location and status of all recorded public rights of way. A Definitive Statement goes with the map and gives the start and end points and sometimes decription of the route.'

Category Poole
Overview

'The route I suggest is not "The Round Dorset Walk"; it is "A Round Dorset Walk". 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.' ALERT Ths Website originally cited here seems no longer, so I have referenced a historical page on the LDWA Website as an alternative.

Category Poole
Overview

'Poole has a lot to offer for residents or visitors wishing to walk in the area. The diverse landscape offers beautiful beaches, open countryside, heathland, nature reserves, formal parks and gardens and a vibrant and historic town centre.'
