Welcome to Dorset Allsorts

We'll be posting a variety of facts and photos of whatever takes our fancy as we wander around Dorset. They may be of churches, buildings, visitor attractions or natural scenes – in fact there will be all sorts! We hope they will give you a glimpse of some of the sights this beautiful county has to offer.

Compton Abbas Airfield

There is free parking at this tiny airfield were you can spend as long as you wish watching these quirky little planes - Mums, Dads and kids alike will love it.  And they also have a cafe from which you can continue observing the action.  If you wander into the nearby fields, you can watch the aircraft fly overhead too.   Compton Abbas is famous for being the airfield from which Asil Nadir fled the country after the Polly Peck scandal in the early 90s.

Here are a few of the photos we took on a recent visit.
