Beneath The Feet Of Cerne's Giant Walk


The walk starts and ends in the centre of Cerne Abbas, giving walkers the chance to explore this historic village.

Ascending the side of the Giant Hill - Little Minterne Hill ridge provides the first views of the sleepy Dorset countryside. The walk then descends to Minterne Magna with its pretty church and its manor-house gardens open to the public in summer.

Climbing again over the hill to Up Cerne and then onto Seldon Hill and the Wessex Ridgeway, more views await the walker. Descending from Weam Common Hill, the best views of the giant can be had just a short way off the route. The walk returns to Cerne Abbas via the official viewpoint. 

Cattle hooves make parts of the walk muddy in all but the driest of weather. The Ridgeway is muddy after wet weather.
