Our Churches

The list below should include every historic church in Dorset, with some information on its important features. We are not seeking to replace Pevsner!. We also provide a guide to its location and to churches nearby. The list is under complete re-development which will take time. We welcome comments on accuracy or indeed if your Dorset church is not included.
