    Wimborne – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Yes Minster
      Wimborne Minster is a former monastery and Benedictine nunnery, and King Æthelred of Wessex (son of Alfred the Great) is buried there.
    2. Dorset & Hardy
      Thomas Hardy lived in a house in Avenue Road, which bears a blue plaque recording that this was where he wrote A Pair of Blue Eyes.
    3. Long Life
      The area has one of the highest life expectancy rates in the country. So life here isn’t just good, it’s long!
    4. How Rude!
      In 1906 Sir Frederick Treves described Wimborne in his book Highways and Byways in Dorset, as ‘a commonplace town squatting soberly in the meadows about the Stour. It is a characterless place. It looks best when seen from a distance’.
    5. Ruddy Big Tree!
      Predating the local car park in which it proudly stands, an ancient horse chestnut tree sits proudly slap bang in the middle of the entrance/exit. Permission was granted for the car park however it was decreed the tree must remain, giving the car park a suitably quirky parking attendant.
    6. Fire-marks
      The town has a number of unusual and interesting plaques. These include the old fire-marks that date back to the 1820’s when homes had to be insured with private fire services who would attend your home in the event of a fire. No fire-mark, no rescue.
