St Peter's Finger pub

Walk: Circular walk from South Lytchett Manor via the St Peter’s Finger


Start at the Craft Centre (café)

  • Turn left and after about 200m turn left again following the sign to Lytchett Minster School.
  • Opposite the entrance to the school is the footpath. Follow this through the woods passing two farm gates, this can be muddy when wet so take care.
  • Continue straight on up the farm path until you reach Race Farm.
  • Just as you approach Race Farm look back at the views over Poole Harbour.
  • At Race Farm the path finishes and you have to follow the road, to your left, passing Huntick Farm. This is the least interesting part of the walk lasting about ¾ mile and the road is quite busy so take great care.
  • When you reach Foxhills Road, stay left and walk down the road for about 10-15 minutes. You will see a bridle path on your left (the sign may be broken, so look for 3 wooden posts – then walk down the path.
  • After this the path turns right and takes you on to Post Green Road. Keepers Cottage is on your left.
  • Go straight on and you will soon find yourself passing Post Green House on your left.
  • Follow the road to the left as it leads into New Road (Lytchett Minster 1/4mile).
  • At the bottom of New Road is the pub (St Peters Finger).

Stop for a well earned rest and then follow the road (to your right as you come out of the pub) back to the campsite.
