Walking in Dorset's Past

Walking in Dorset's Past

Have you ever walked around Dorset and noticed all those strange lumps and bumps across the hillsides and wondered what those are. Some of these are nothing, built by modern farmers usually as rubbish tips, others are monuments built thousands of years ago by prehistoric people in memory of their ancestors or to defend themselves against incoming enemies.


As you follow the walks in this book you will look at Dorset with a different eye, each of those mounds, lumps and bumps has a story to tell and each is different, most are combined with local myths and legends to give many spooky stories mainly involving the Isle of Wight!
