Buckland Newton, Dorset

To wrap up our weekend, we decided to stay local and take a stroll around a different village, Buckland Newton.  After a little research in the book Dorset Pub Strolls, we found a pub – Gandering Geese – that offered a 3 mile picturesque walk around the village.

Point #1 – make sure the pub is still open!  Book was published in 2001.   Things change in 15 years….Pub was no longer in operation!   It didn’t deter us from the walk though so we set off on the trail described in the book.   It was a gorgeous walk.  Sun was shining, mixture of meadows and trails and there’s always another pub to find at the end 🙂
