Somewhere on this section I will cross the route I took from Cheltenham down to my wife’s parents’ home in Dorset for Christmas 2005. I was very lucky with the weather that week. I expect to come west from Salisbury to south of Sturminster Newton and then follow the North Dorset Trailway south past Shillingstone where my aunt, Ruth Colyer, lived till her death in 2011. She fought for decades to preserve and develop the footpaths and bridleways of Dorset so I will ride this stretch in memory of her. Then I turn west again. I need to spread maps all over the floor to sort out a route though west Dorset to Exeter and hope to have my proposed route on the website by Christmas 2011.
Next section: Exeter to Truro.
