About Blandford

Located on the banks of the River Stour, Blandford Forum is the most complete, small Georgian town in England. Following an extensive fire in 1731 Blandford Forum ‘rose like the phoenix from its ashes, to its present and flourishing state’ as the Fire Monument in the market place states.

This unique Georgian gem with its stunning architecture, charming parish church and wonderful market place was the inspiration of local architects and builders the Bastard Brothers who rebuilt the town after the fire. The town museum tells the story of the rebirth of the town. Notable buildings include the Corn Exchange, and the 1732 parish church of St Peter and St Paul, a classical building with a cupola on top of the tower. The interior remains relatively unaffected by Victorian interference and retains its galleries, font, pulpit, box-pews and mayoral seat. In 1893 the church was enlarged by moving the apsidal sanctuary out on rollers onto new foundations and building a new chancel behind it.

Surrounding the attractive market place is a variety of independent shops and boutiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs. For a local ‘tipple’ pay a visit to the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery and shop. To the south of the town a six arch stone bridge spans the River Stour.

Blandford Camp home to the Royal Corps of Signals is 2 kilometres north east of the town. The base incorporates a modern technology training college plus a cinema for military personnel, and the National Signals Museum – a museum of items relating to the history of the Royal Signals since its inception, which is open to the public. The museum contains many items of interest including uniforms, medals, signals equipment, and an Enigma cryptographic machine, used to crack German ciphers during World War II.
