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.

Church of the Holy Trinity - Turnerspuddle

This church dates back over 500 years but was de-consecrated in 1974.  Inside we found some richly carved pews that were much older than the rest and obviously date back to much earlier days.  We also saw the Egyptian reed organ that dated back to about 1860.  Even though it looks past its sell-by-date, it's still a lovely instrument.

Inside the church porch we found this useful information sheet which gives some interesting facts about the church.
