Blandford Forum

Blandford Forum is a market town on the River Stour, noted for its Georgian architecture. The entire town was rebuilt in the 18th century following a fire in 1731, hence the style of the town is fairly uniform. There is still a weekly outdoor market held twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays.
