The Village: 
Thriving is definitely a word that describes the well positioned village of Shillingstone which features in the Doomsday Book of 1086 as a settlement of 46 households with meadow, woodlands and a mill.  The village is now somewhat bigger than that although it remains surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside and not far from the banks of the River Stour as it meanders towards Blandford.   
A visit to the village website confirms that the current villagers have diverse interests and the community supports a wide number of clubs and societies including a Tennis Club, Beekeepers,
Scouts, Whist, and Gardening to name but a few. Like so many others the village had a railway station for over a hundred years from 1863 to its closure in 1966.  Having fallen into disrepair this is now undergoing extensive restoration by the Shillingstone Station Project which is supported by the North Dorset Railway Trust.  Certainly worth a visit!   

Shillingstone is located between the towns of Sturminster Newton and Blandford both of which offer a wide range of shopping and cultural facilities.  Doctors’ Surgeries, Dentists, Banks and larger supermarkets will be found in these towns.  The village itself has a Parish Church, Petrol Station, Inn, Village Hall and Recreation Ground with football pitch, cricket square and tennis courts.  

Located on the A357 Shillingstone offers good road links to the coast to the south and Sherborne to the North.  London by road would be via the A303/M3 or alternatively Wimborne, Ringwood and the M27/M3.  The mainline railway station at Gillingham offers regular rail links to London and the West Country.      

The new village Primary School opened in 2010.  The village is also home to the Forum School and nearby the renowned schools include Hanford; Bryanston, Milton Abbey and Knighton House.
