Out & About with West Dorset NT

In September several members took the opportunity to accompany one of the newest West Dorset Rangers - Phil Thorpe - on a walk round the Golden Cap Estate in search of the orchid 'Autumn Lady's Tresses'. Unfortunately it was a little late in the season but several were found along with other interesting natural flora and fauna.

September was a busy time for the West Dorset NT as the Cerne Abbas Giant was re-chalked with the help of over 300 volunteers. This was done ready for next year when we celebrate 70 years of it being credited as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 60 years of being a Dorset AONB.
