    6 Quirky Facts About Blandford

    1. Blandford Camp
      Blandford camp (2 miles from the town centre) has been home to the Royal Corps of Signals since 1960. It has long been a military base and was previously used by both the Royal Navy and Royal Flying Corps (forerunner of the RAF). During WWII it was a battle training camp and troops were sent here before heading to North Africa or Normandy. Today it also houses the Royal Signals Museum, Royal School of Signals and the Defence College of Communications.
    2. Bastard Brothers
      The town was ravaged by four major fires between the 16th and 18th centuries, which destroyed houses, shops and factories. After the ‘great fire’ in 1731 most of the town was burnt down. The Bastard Brothers (John and William) who were renowned architects at the time, designed the entire new town centre in the Georgian style which gives the town it’s charming appearance. A monument to the fire stands in the market square in remembrance of those that were killed in the tragedies.
    3. Take A Walk
      Blandford has a superb selection of independent shops. While the ‘usual suspects’ dominate the high street, there are delightful passages and walks where you’ll find some amazing artisan stores and boutiques including Tabernacle Walk, Barnack Walk, Hardys Yard and Georgian Passage.
    4. Prince Charles
      Having once been visited by King John, Blandford has a number of royal ties. It was once owned by Henry IV and today is part of the duchy of the Prince Charles whose crest the town has adopted as its own.
    5. Mad as Bag of Badgers
      Blandford is wonderfully eccentric. Take the case of the Blandford Badgers. Created by Hall & Wodehouse (who are based in the town) the brewers behind Badgers Beers, three larger than life badgers sit on the roundabout that gives entry to the brewery. But this is Blandford, so that was never going to be enough. The Badgers are now regularly given makeovers by ‘persons unknown’ (referred to locally as the ‘Badger Banksy’) in readiness for events like the Rugby World Cup, Halloween and other dates of national celebration.
    6. Forum
      The word ‘Forum’ is Latin for ‘market place’. The town has had a market from its earliest incarnation, with signs of trading from Saxon times, through the middle ages, right up until today. Earlier markets mostly centred around the sheep trade and textile. Today you might not get a couple of ewes but there is still a weekly market (Thursdays and Saturdays), held in the old Market Square that showcases great produces from across the region.

    About Blandford

    About Blandford

    An ancient market town, Blandford has been trading since before the Romans arrived with their fancy sandals and clean water. The town still has a thriving market and has switched focus to the purity of beer thanks to the hugely popular Hall & Wodehouse Brewery (much supported in the area, and locals do their bit to help ‘research’ any new brews).

    After a series of devastating fires that decimated the town, a pair of famous architectural brothers gave Blandford a whole new look, and the current, impressive Georgian architecture that gives the town a timeless feel. There are good shops, good travel links, plus miles of countryside and a keen foodie culture. What’s not to love?!?

    Leisure

    The town is very proud of its roots and holds a Georgian street fair in May, with a fun fair, stalls, entertainment, street food, stalls and more. If you have artistic flair you can view or contribute to the many Art Society events held through the year. If music is your thing, the Teddy Rocks music festival is an annual event raising money for local charities.

    There’s also a museum, fashion museum, the Great Dorset Steam Fair attracting thousands to the area and a golf course. Phew!

    Transport

    Sitting on the compass points of the A350 and A354 crossroads, the town centre is protected by a recent bypass. Blandford Forum doesn’t have a train station but there are good bus routes connecting the town with the Dorset coast and across to cities like Salisbury. Both the M27 and M3 are within easy striking distance giving access to the South East and London.
