Footpath over the Mill Update

 The Footpath over the Mill is currently closed for public safety because severe erosion underground has made the surface unstable.

Dorset County Council had advised us that repair works are scheduled to start on 13th May 2015 and should take approximately 2 weeks.

For your own safety we ask you to observe all warning signs and stay out of the working area whilst the repairs are taking place. 

Thank you for your patience!

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.
