Well, a new walk for us anyway. This afternoon I decided to take the dogs out to Corfe Hills which lies on the Corfe Mullen / Broadstone border. This is an area of heathland that it, sadly, broken up into several small bits, mainly by Broadstone Golf Course. Which means that to get to most of it you have to walk across the golf course.
So the dogs an I set off, with the dogs on the lead as we crossed the fairway. This was the section of heath that lies in the middle of the golf course.
It wasn’t a very long walk, but Jez was still glad of a puddle to drink from.
In places there was a lot of long grass. Her is some purple vetch growing in amongst the grasses.
The sections that make up this bit of heath are starting to get some attention as part of the Great Heath Project, but you can tell that this particular part has been long neglected by the way this seat is getting slowly hidden.
After that it was back across the fairway where I had a bit of a struggle to stop Jez stopping for a rest. She settled for lying down under the trees at the edge of the fairway in the end.
