DIRECTIONS FROM DORCHESTER – FOR THE MORE ADVENTUROUS!

If the sun is shining and you do not mind some narrow lanes, try the scenic route from Dorchester, avoiding most of the A35.

• At the A35 / A37 roundabout on the Dorchester bypass, take the A35 to Bridport.

• 2 miles from this roundabout, turn right. Signposted Compton Valence. Straight across the next crossroads.

• You are now on an old Roman road. After 3 miles, the main road turns right. Keep straight on at this junction – signposted Eggardon, Askerswell and Bridport.

• Drive 3 miles to another crossroads. Again, straight over – signposted Powerstock and West Milton. On your left is the magnificent Eggardon Hill Iron Age settlement – well worth a return visit to walk round.

• You are now on a single track road with passing places for 2 ½ miles, when you reach the village of Powerstock. The Three Horseshoes is on your left – excellent pub food.

• Turn left at the junction, down the hill and out of the village.

• At the 'T' junction, turn right and on into the village of West Milton. You are nearly there!

• Turn right on the main road over the small bridge and go right through the village. At the other side, turn right up the hill. Signposted to Poorton and Loscombe.

• After half a mile, at the crossroads close to the top of the hill, turn right (signposted as 'No Through Road') – single track road to LANCOMBES HOUSE.

LANCOMBES HOUSE IS 200 YARDS ALONG THIS ROAD.
