Yetminster & Ryme Intrinseca Walking Group

The group organises village walks to enable people to meet and share our beautiful countryside. It is also involved with a survey of the present condition of the Rights of Way within the Parish and is working with the Dorset Ranger Service and the Parish Council to seek improvements where appropriate. Additionally, the group carries out simple maintenance with the view to making access fit for all.

Details of Rights of Way together with those already surveyed can be found on the “About Us” pages available via the “Home” Tag on the Parish Website main header panel and by clicking here 

Walking Group Walks ARE ALL FREE and all are welcome! 



Meet at 2.30pm at The White Hart Yetminster
