Blandford Forum

Blandford Forum (8 miles from The Victorian Barn) is a market town in Dorset, sited by the River Stour about 15 miles northwest of Poole. Blandford is notable for its Georgian architecture, the result of rebuilding after the majority of the town was destroyed by a fire in 1731. The rebuilding work was assisted by an Act of Parliament and a donation by George II, and the rebuilt town centre—to designs by local architects John and William Bastard—has survived to the present day largely intact. Sturminster Newton (4 miles from The Victorian Barn) is a pretty Dorset town, in the Stour farmlands, where there has been a market since 1272. It is situated in the beautiful Blackmore Vale, between Sherborne and Blandford Forum. There are several rivers in the area, the largest of which is the River Stour, which flows south from its source in Somerset, and turns south east at Sturminster Newton. With thriving businesses, attractions and local events—no wonder Thomas Hardy once lived here.
