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.
