Athelhampton House 

A Waiting Supper Walk to celebrate the 130th anniversary of the first publication of this story.

Meet in the car park at Athelhampton House (NGR SY770943) at 10am for an exploration of Athelhall as decscribed in the story.

This will be followed by a walk to Weatherbury and across Egdon Heath to Rainbarrow and thence to the Thorncombe Wood Visitor Centre for a lunch stop.  After lunch we will walk via Bhompson Farm to Lower Mellstock and across the water meadows to West Stafford House, where we will explore the banks of the Frome and the waterfall, before being received in the marquee for the THS AGM.

This linear seven mile walk will be led by Tony Fincham and Helen Lange.  Arrangements will be made to reunite drivers with their cars after the AGM.

Those wishing for a shorter walk can join us at the Thorncombe Wood Visitor Centre by 1.30pm (earlier if planning to lunch there).

Please note that entry to Stafford Park is for THS members only.
