Walks from Tanglewood
The Purbeck Way
The Purbeck Way is a spectacular walk within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Some of the highlights along the route include visiting the delightful town of Wareham surrounded by the Saxon Wareham Walls. Then the landscape and its wildlife completely changes across Stoborough Heath and Creech Heath to Corfe Castle - find out about the village's long and eventful history dating back well before the castle itself. Enjoy the magnificent views from the chalk ridge of Ballard Down across Poole Harbour on your way to Old Harry rock or Swanage.
Part of the journey includes walking by the River Frome, linking with the Frome Valley Trail. You might be lucky enough to see a kingfisher or beautiful demoiselle damselfly along the river bank.
The walk is 15.5 miles.
