About this book

Many of Dorset's attractions are well-hidden and known only to locals, who like to keep the county's treasures to themselves. The Slow Guide, written by a native of Dorset, takes you to those secret places and introduces you to some delightful Dorset locals, both living and dead. Practical information covers accommodation, eating and drinking, and travelling in this unspoilt region.
