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.
