There are not many towns that can boast about having a nature reserve so close to its centre – Weymouth is lucky enough to have one and so are our canine friends. With a range of wildlife and scenic trails Radipole is one of the most visited areas of Weymouth.
Over looking Weymouth’s famous harbour and home to the Nothe Fort, Nothe Gardens attracts people from all over Weymouth whether it be the chance to have a relaxing day on the grass in the sun or playing fetch in the gardens.
This beautiful trail running for approximately 2 miles used to be an old railway until 1965. In 1970 the tracks had been lifted and by the mid 1980s the parts of the track where used by pedestrians as shortcuts. A project began in 1997 to open up the pathway to the public and in 2000 the trail officially opened allowing all to enjoy.
