A small village in the Stour valley, approximately mid-way between Wimborne and Blandford Forum. Farming dominates this area and settlements tend to be small and spread out. The village lies on the Kingston Lacy Estate (note the uniform colour of the paint used for all door and window frames in the village as used on all other buildings on the estate) and consequently has been able to resist the pressure for expansion in recent years, unlike Sturminster Marshall just a few miles down river.
The pictures shown here were taken over a couple of bright and relatively clear days early in September, with the shadows already taking on the depth more usually associated with winter.
