The third volume of this popular series, which previously
explored coastal Dorset, now heads inland.

Your historical tour begins in the delightful, bustling market
town of Wimborne Minster, adorned by the magnificent
Church of St Cuthberga, complete with its enchanting
Quarterjack, a truly wonderful Model Town and a variety of
majestic bridges.

It then heads westwards with highlights
including the Georgian town of Blandford Forum, which
was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1731; Milton
Abbas, where villagers were once evicted on the whim of
a local landowner; Tolpuddle, which still resonates with the
proud legacy of its famous Martyrs; the grand county town
of Dorchester, which dates back to Roman times and is so
closely linked to literary heroes Thomas Hardy and William
Barnes; the picturesque village of Cerne Abbas, adorned by
its famous chalk giant; and the pretty town of Beaminster,
near the border with both Somerset and Devon, before
concluding over 900 feet above sea-level on Pilsdon Pen,
offering spectacular views for miles around.

You will visit towns and villages brimming with their own
very individual stories and legends, which ensures an unforgettable journey.
