You could consider riding into college on your bike. Save some money and help the environment. Kingston Maurward is situated off a busy road so you will need to take extra care and make sure you wear all relevant safety gear. However, there is an alternative route from Dorchester that avoids crossing the A35. Turn right 300 metres past Grey’s Bridge and follow the bridleway along the water meadows to the rear of the college campus. The college is developing further strategies for improving cycle access and bike storage.
The nearest stations are Dorchester West – serving Yeovil, Bristol and Bath, and Dorchester South – serving Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Southampton. The college is about approximately a 30 minute walk from these stations or about 10 minutes in the car.
