Coles Miller is sponsoring Kingston Lacy’s new Cycle Hub – a new pitstop to help cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts using the National Cycle Network Route 25 which passes through the historic estate near Wimborne.

Staff from the Poole law firm volunteered to help build the new hub which includes air pumps, bike tools, water points and picnic facilities as well as information about Kingston Lacy and suggestions of other cycle routes nearby.

It will act as a key focal point to help families enjoy the 8,500-acre estate’s 72 miles of lanes, droveways and paths.

Coles Miller has been supporting the National Trust since May 2012. The trust cares for many much-loved Dorset landmarks including Kingston Lacy, Corfe Castle, Studland Beach and Brownsea Island.

Coles Miller Marketing Manager Lee Taylor said the new Cycle Hub would be “a fantastic new facility for cyclists and walkers of all ages and abilities.

“It will help to make all the beautiful countryside at Kingston Lacy even more accessible to families, providing them with a wonderful safe environment to get out and about on their bikes,” he added.

Kingston Lacy Gardens and Countryside Manager Nigel Chalk said: “The route through Pamphill and along Cowgrove Lane passes Firs Barn Farm on Kingston Lacy’s estate and attracts lots of cyclists.

“It is often busy, especially in the summer months and our aim is to offer them a stop-off point.

“We want to let people know the lovely countryside they are travelling through is National Trust land and to offer them a friendly and practical welcome, as well as showing them some of the other opportunities to cycle in the area.

“The project has been made possible by the generous support of Coles Miller who have helped pay for the materials and equipment and we are very grateful for their support,” he added.

Coles Miller is a strong supporter of road safety, sponsoring the LV=Streetwise interactive safety centre in Elliott Road, West Howe.

The law firm – which has offices in Bournemouth, Poole, Broadstone, Charminster and Wimborne – helps cyclists and other road users injured in accidents across the UK to claim compensation to fund their care and treatment.
