A little background on Blandford Forum:

A fording point since Anglo-Saxon times, Blandford Forum was originally known as Blaen-y-Ford and recorded as Blaneford in the Domesday Book. Noted for its fascinating Georgian architecture, but due to a fire in 1731 much of Blandford was rebuilt during the 18th century, leaving it with prominent buildings such as the Corn Exchange and the Parish Church building of St Peter and St Paul.
