Buildings and architecture



 

 

 

 The architecture of Wimborne is regarded as one of the foremost collections of 15th, 16th and 17th-century buildings in Dorset. Local planning has restricted the construction of new buildings in areas such as the Corn Market and the High Street, resulting in the preservation of almost all of the original buildings. The most interesting examples of English architecture include the centuries-old Wimborne Minster, the Town Hall, The Priest's House Museum and dozens of original 16th, 17th and 18th-century fronted shops and pubs. The town is home to the The Tivoli Theatre, a 1930s art deco cinema and theatre. 



Wimborne Minster Church

 



This is a Saxon Church, with Norman and Gothic architecture. It is famed for its chained library and the tombs of King Ethelred, the brother of Alfred the Great, as well as the tombs of John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, and his duchess, the maternal grandparents of King Henry VII of England.This is made of Dorset Limestone and New Forest Stone to keep it strong. 




  

The Minster


Wimborne Model Town



The model town is one of the largest and longest established model towns in England. It depicts Wimborne at the time the model was made, in the 1950s. It is at 1/10 scale, resulting in the model of the Minster being several feet high. The model shop windows accurately show the goods which the real shops were selling at the time. The exhibitionalso includes a model railway based on Thomas the Tank Engine, which was opened by Christopher Awdry, and expanded in 2014. 

 

Education and school



 

The town has three First Schools (St John's First School, Wimborne First School, Pamphill First School) and two Middle Schools (St Michael's Middle School and Allenbourn Middle School). Wimborne First School, formerly Wimborne Primary School, has been educating the children of Wimborne Minster to primary level, since 1911. Wimborne and the area of Merley are served by two Upper Schools in the local region: Corfe Hills School and Queen Elizabeth School

Queen Elizabeth's School has very close links with the Minster and was founded by Lady Margaret Beaufort in 1497. After her death the school became Wimborne Grammar School. Although the Grammar School buildings still remain they have now been converted to flats. The school was established on its current site in 1972 after the merging of Wimborne Grammar School and the County Modern School.

Perhaps the most famous of educational institutions near Wimborne is the private Canford School, at Canford Magna.Dumpton School is located nearby, and there is a Roman Catholic primary school, St Catherine's in Colehill. The nearby first schools of Hayeswood and Colehill serve Wimborne.

Economy

 

The historically important aerospace company Cobham PLC has headquarters in Wimborne and employs a large proportion of its residents. Home decoration company Farrow & Ball began in the town, and is still headquartered on the town's fringe in Ferndown. The economy of the town is dedicated towards Leisure and has shopsrestaurants and pubsTourism is an aspect in the town's economy. The town is also served by a Waitrose located on the old Cricket Green and a Co-Op supermarket.


Wimborne railway station

  


From 1847 to 1977 Wimborne was served by a two platform railway station. The station was built for the Southampton and Dorchester Railway, later part of the London and South Western Railway. It was expanded when the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway was constructed between Bath and Poole. Wimborne was used as a reversing point on the Somerset and Dorset, but its importance was reduced when an avoiding line was built from Bailey Gate to Broadstone, Dorset. The station had a large goods yard, the site of which is used for the weekly Wimborne Market. The station was closed to passengers in 1964 and sundries (parcels and light goods) in 1966, as a result of the Beeching Axe programme. The final goods trains ran in May 1977.
