The peaceful village of Moreton is 1½ miles from Moreton Station. Take care walking the first ½ mile as there's no path along this fast road - use the verge where possible. Moreton's St Nicholas Church has unusual engraved glass windows by Laurence Whistler. TE Lawrence 'Lawrence of Arabia' lived nearby at Clouds Hill (see below) is buried in the cemetery near the church.

The Lawrence of Arabia Trail runs from Moreton village to Clouds Hill and the Tank Museum at Bovington (see Wool station). |
