A cycle around Dorset country lanes

Yesterday saw my wife, Chris, and I on a bike ride just a few miles north of where we live. We cycled along some very quiet country lanes and passed through some typical Dorset villages such as Witchampton, Wimborne St Giles, Edmondsham, Horton and Holt. Lunch was munched in the centre of Wimborne St Giles, sat underneath the very decorative village sign. After lunch, we wandered into the beautifully ornate historical village church. The village has been designated a conservation and has some interesting alms houses which were built in 1624. It still surprises me that, when travelling slowly by bike, one can still find ‘little gems’ on one’s own doorstep!
