DescriptionThis is a 18 mile (30km) circular cycle route. Difficulty rating: Grade 2. It will take about 2-3 hours to complete. This route takes you through Marnhull and Stalbridge, crossing the River Stour as you go round. Stop and admire the former Kings Mill, now a private residence. Start from Marnhull Village Hall. The Hall is away from the main road up a short track. It is signed from the village by small wooden signs. Interesting places to stop: As you cross the Stour, stop to admire the river. Kings Mill is still an impressive sight and has been beautifully restored as a private residence. You may be lucky enough to see footprints of Otter, as the Stour is an important stronghold of this elusive mammal. Stalbridge has a bike shop where you can hire a bike for the day or get that new piece of kit you wanted for months. The listed market cross in Stalbridge is known to be one of the best preserved in the South West and is built of golden Ham Hill stone. Refreshments: Stalbridge has various shops, cafes and 3 pubs where you can purchase refreshments including the Stalbridge Arms which you will pass on the ride. The Crown Inn at Marnhull offers a warm welcome to all who enter through its door. It has been serving customers for over 500 years and can count Thomas Hardy as one of its clients. It even made a guest appearance in the Tess of the D’Urbervilles as the Pure Drop Inn.
