Overview

Sherborne's own Blue Badge guide, Cindy Chant, takes you for a gentle stroll around this historic market town. The walk commences at the Tourist Information Centre on Digby Road: taking in the outside of the Abbey, the School, the Yeatman Hospital and back along Cheap Street - with its diverse buildings built from handsome ochre coloured local Hamstone
