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.

National Champion Plane Tree

We were quite surprised to discover that in the grounds of Bryanston School in Blandford are the largest broad leaf trees in Britain (and only a few in Europe are taller).  Three are particularly massive (over 45 metres each) and one London Plane tree is approaching 50 metres!
The walk through the school grounds is a nice one and takes you close to the River Stour.
