River Cerne between Charlton Down and Charminster in Dorset

Daily Walk in Difficult Times 99

Scroll down to content

To the south of Charlton Down the River Cerne becomes wider and more open. Willows and alders run along the bankside, and vegetation has colonised the river bed as well as some of the margins. Sheep usually graze the flat river valley fields to either side and chalk hills slope steeply up to form the valley sides.

  1. Thank you, Emma. The picture you refer to shows a favourite place for the sheep to shelter and rest. I wonder how many generations have trampled that spot and polished the exposed roots.
