Situated on a slight hill overlooking Blackmore Vale, Marnhull is a broad scattering of houses – with many from the 17th and 18th century, E.g. the farm building next to the churchyard is c. 1500.

The pictures in the gallery were taken on a warm July day, with the early morning mist clearing only slowly from the Stour valley bottom. They follow a meandering route from Gillingham southwards down past East Stour (ST 800 230), Fifehead Magdalen (ST 780 215) through Marnhull village itself and then out to the east – from where there are views across to Duncliffe Hill (ST 825 225).
