    5 Quirky Facts About Beaminster

    1. Domesday
      Originally known as ‘Bebingmynster’ in the 7th century, Beaminster was of high enough status to have been included in the Domesday Book, created by William the Conqueror in 1086 to record the wealth of parishes in order to calculate taxes. The population at this time was around 300. The name ‘minster’ refers to what must have been a sizeable church and possibly a holy order.
    2. Fire!
      During the English Civil War, like much of the region Beaminster was Parliamentarian. King Charles II sent his nephew Prince Maurice to the South West where he lead troops in a series of battles. Beaminster was attacked and after putting up very little resistance the town was captured by the Prince who with his entourage and troops stayed overnight. Unfortunately during their stay, a stray musket ball fired in the roof of a thatched building started a fire that quickly spread. It engulfed and destroyed three quarters of the buildings of the entire town. “Oops! My bad!”
    3. Not Again!
      The town suffered two more major fires in 1684 and 1781, in both instances there was considerable damage to the town centre and many buildings had to be pulled down and rebuilt.
    4. Beerminster
      Despite its small size, the good folk of Beaminster must have had a thirst. At the start of the 20th century the town had a population of less than 3,000 and 17 pubs!!
    5. Almost Famous
      Beaminster was brought to life, via a quick name change in Tess of the D’urbervilles. Dorset Lad Thomas Hardy included many Dorset towns in his novels although often changed their names. In the case of Beaminster, it became ‘Emminster’ and when the book was portrayed on the London stage, Hardy personally chose Gertrude Bugler to play Tess and Gertrude briefly dreamed of becoming an actress. However, Hardy’s wife was none too happy about her ‘rival’ to Hardy’s affections (he was known for his love of women, despite being 81 at the time) and she dissuaded Gertrude from staying in the capital. The fact that Gertrude had recently married her cousin and was already pregnant also possibly had something to do with her decision not to stay in the West End.

    About Beaminster

    About BEAMINSTER

    Nestled in a bowl-shaped valley where the River Brit drifts lazily by, Beaminster is wonderfully removed. While sufficiently off the beaten track that you’re unlikely to wake up to find traffic jams winding post your driveway, Beaminster is reassuringly close to large towns with all the big-name shops and brands. For those that prefer to shop local, support small business and save on emissions, there is plenty right on your doorstep.

    There is also a good calendar of annual events plus a number of clubs and societies for those that like to try something new.

    Leisure

    History buffs can learn up on the story of Beaminster at the town museum. Once a year the area is brightened by the arrival of the Beaminster Festival that attracts musicians from across the country at a large picnic in the park. The town sits within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are certainly plenty of places for walking, riding and stables. Golfers can get into the swing at the nearby Bridport and West Dorset Golf Course.

    Transport

    This is a rural community and you are in an area where you’re more likely to be held briefly by a tractor than sitting for hours in gridlock. The A37 that sits to the East of the town is the main artery connecting Yeovil and Dorchester. Maiden Newton is the nearest train station a 15-minute drive away. There are bus routes and the closest airport is Exeter.
