Roads, Tracks & Turnpikes


SKU: 1162 Category:


(David Viner) Dorset’s roads and tracks have sustained the movement of man, livestock and goods since time immemorial.  They are a delightful way of discovering the county, both by car and on foot.  Green roads, holloways, ancient ox droves, priests’ ways, packhorse bridges, bridleways – are all covered.

The turnpikes remain the backbone of the modern road system, leaving in their wake a rich legacy of milestones, finger posts, tollhouses and coaching inns.
