A first visit by Dorsetcamera to a village which I have driven through many times.
The view west up Fore Street with the Acorn Inn on the right.
The village shop. There are the feint remains of an older shop name painted on the wall. I can only make out the words Draper and Tailor.
The Acorn Inn that Thomas Hardy called 'The Sow & Acorn' in 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles'.
The village church of St Osmunds. The oldest part of the church is Norman. However, the present structure is essentially Perpendicular (1335-1530) with some parts modified by the Victorians in the 19th century.
Looking back down Fore Street from the churchyard.
