Jubilee Path Update
The Town Council has voted unanimously that Cllr Martin Jones should lead its efforts to get the Jubilee Path link to the Trailway at Stourcastle opened to the public. Martin has started work on resolving the problems that have prevented this from happening so far. He has promised to provide further updates which will be published here, so watch this space.
Stur Mill Update
Sturminster Newton Museum & Mill Society is presently
working with the Town Council to commission a detailed survey of the Mill
building and machinery along with the weir, hatches, etc. This will enable us
to plan the maintenance and assess the conservation needs of this iconic building
accurately and for the long-term. Our aim is to keep the Mill open to the
public and in working order for this and future generations. Since the Town
Council’s lease of the site is up for renewal, a detailed survey and
maintenance plan will also help us to ensure that the new legal arrangements
which now need to be made are fit for this purpose.

Sturminster Newton is a small market town in the heart of the Blackmore Vale steeped in history and tradition. The town is mentioned in the Domesday Book and some present day residents can trace their ancestors back for centuries. The last fifteen years have witnessed considerable changes. The closure of the well-established cattle market and the loss of the creamery caused much sadness and dismay but led to regeneration of the town centre and large new housing developments. Thanks to the vision and efforts of its residents and business community, the town retains its character and vibrancy and remains a friendly and popular place to live, work and visit.
