Dorset historic towns survey
Dorset has a rich variety of historic towns, each with its own special character and story. The Dorset Historic Towns Survey analysed this historic character, so important to the individuality, sense of place and economic well-being of the county's towns.
Dorset's rich heritage of historic buildings and scenic villages contributes to the county's unique character and identity. They are important for tourism and education, and a significant factor in regeneration of places and communities.
