The local History section is a collection of fascinating North Dorset history articles featured in the BV magazine.
In this section we present each of Roger Guttridge’s ‘Looking Back’ columns. These columns tell the often-forgotten stories of local heroes, villains, characters and their places within the Blackmore Vale.
Also Roger’s ‘Then & Now’ comparisons – how the Blackmore Vale looks now compared to the same spot perhaps 120 years ago.
Also featured is Paul Birbeck’s column – a Blue Badge local guide based in Sherborne, Paul examines various local places and shares their social history.
All these columns give a fascinating insight into the history of the Blackmore Vale.
