Things are looking up for Okeford Fitzpaine now that Little Lane has been resurfaced and forms a connection to the North Dorset Trailway and White Hart Link. Thanks to volunteers and a grant awarded by the Leader Fund administered by the North Dorset Local Action Group, what was an impassable muddy track is now suitable for walkers and cyclists. The potential for tourism development in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounding Okeford Fitzpaine has improved as a result. Listen to Simon Hoare, MP for North Dorset talk about the importance of public rights of way for the local economy.
