Here’s a few fun facts about Gillingham you may not have heard before!
Gillingham is a town and civil parish in the Blackmore Vale area of Dorset, England. It lies on the B3095 and B3081 roads in the North Dorset administrative district, approximately 4 miles south of the A303 trunk road and 5 miles northwest of Shaftesbury. It is the most northerly town in the county.
- A Stone Age barrow in the town indicates that there has been a settlement here for thousands of years, and there is also evidence of Roman settlement in the 2nd and 3rd centuries.
- There is evidence of royal connections in Saxon times and, in the Middle Ages, Gillingham was the seat of a royal hunting lodge. This was visited by King John and the first three Henrys. The lodge was demolished in 1369 after it had fallen into disrepair.
- Gillingham became a thriving centre for the local farming community and built the first Grammar School in Dorset in 1526. By the end of the 18th century, it also had a silk mill. The local church has a 14th century chancel, but mostly dates from the 19th and 20th centuries. There are still many 15th century buildings surviving in the town.
