ROADS, TRACKS & TURNPIKES
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 – all are to be found here. 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.
