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.

Avenue of Beeches

The road from Blandford to Wimborne (Blandford Road) is bordered for over two miles by beech trees - 365 apparently on each side (although we've not counted them!).  It apparently dates back to 1838 and is reported to be the longest avenue in Europe.  Some trees have succumbed to the ravages of time but it's an impressive sight, and to safeguard the future, some younger trees have been planted.
