WIMBORNE MINSTER

Dorset

Wimborne Minster, Dorset

The attractive little Dorset town of Wimborne Minster takes it's name from this church.

The Church was built on the site of a Monastery during the early Norman period. At that time the lantern tower was added (pictured centre).  The church is unusual in having two towers, the other (picture right) was added in the 15th Century.

The Minster has the look and feel of a Cathedral, although it isn't one.
