DORCHESTER, the county town, is a municipal borough union and market town and head of a petty sessional division, in the Southern division of the county, rural deanery of Dorchester (Dorchester portion), archdeaconry of Dorset and diocese of Salisbury. 16 miles south-west from Blandford, 15 east from Bridport, 8 north from Weymouth, 18 east-by-south from Beaminster and 120 from London by the old coach road, but by the railway, through Southampton, 138½ miles. The London and South-Western and Great Western railways have stations here.

This was one of the strongest and most extensive Roman stations, under the name of Durnovaria, and some remains of the Roman walls are yet to be seen, forming part of the garden wall of Mr. Edwin BURNETT, in the High West street; it is a regular and well-built town, on the river Frome and Ikening Street, and comprises the parishes of St. Peter, Holy Trinity, All Saints' and Fordington. The houses are chiefly modern, built of brick and stone : there are three principal streets, viz. East, West and South. The approaches from the London, Bridport and Weymouth roads are through long avenues of sycamore, elm and chestnut trees; and the south, west and part of the north sides of the town have walks between avenues of fine trees, forming a beautiful promenade, commanding an extensive prospect over the downs and the surrounding country. The town is paved, well supplied with water from works at Bridport road, the property of the Corporation, and lighted with gas by a company. The borough is governed by a mayor, four aldermen and twelve councillors, who also act as the urban Sanitary Authority the borough has a commission of the peace: it formerly returned two members to Parliament, but by "The Representation of the People Act, 1867," it returned one only, and by the "Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885" the representation was merged into that of the county.

Dorchester, with Fordington, has five churches:

    1. Holy Trinity, in High West street, is the third edifice which has been built on the same site; the first one having been destroyed by fire in 1824, was replaced by a small plain building, which was pulled down in 1875, and the present one, which is of Portland atone, erected at a cost of £5,000: it is in the Early English style, and consists of chancel, nave and aisles, 'with turret and one bell: it contains 650 seats. The register dates from the year 1653. The living is a rectory, with that of Frome Whitfield annexed, joint gross yearly value £500 net £439, including 70 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the feoffees of the Free School and Almshouse charities, and held since 1870 by the Rev. Henry EVERETT M.A. of Exeter College, Oxford, rural dean of Dorchester and surrogate.
    2. St. Peter's is a large ancient Gothic stone pile in the centre of the town; it consists of a. chancel, nave, aisle, south porch with an embattled western tower 90 feet high, with pinnacles, and containing 8 bells: there is a chapel at the north-east in which the organ is placed: the church has 615 seats. The register dates from the year 1653. The living is a rectory, gross yearly value £233, net ,£228, with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Thomas Kingdon ALLEN M.A. of Queen's College, Oxford, and chaplain of H.M. Prison.
    3. All Saints' Church was rebuilt in 1845; it is a splendid edifice of stone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles with lancet windows, porch and north-west spire with two bells: in the chancel is a superbly stained window with the effigy of the donor, the Bishop of Salisbury: there are also memorial windows to Jane, wife of Col. John Rawden OLDFIELD, and to A. H. D. TROYTR: there is a handsome altar tomb with recumbent figure, surmounted by a carved canopy, to the memory of Matthew CHUBB, ob. 1625: it contains 450 sittings. The register dates from the year 1653. The living is a rectory, gross yearly value £172, with residence, in the gift of Simeon's trustees, and held since 1892 by the Rev. Samuel Edward Valpy FILLEUL M.A. of Corpus Christi college, Oxford.
    4. Fordington church, St. George stands on an eminence: it is an ancient stone structure, containing work of the Norman, Early English and Perpendicular periods, originally built in the form of a cross, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, south transept and south porch: it has a high embattled western tower with pinnacles, containing 6 bells and a clock: over the inner door of the porch (south) is represented the vision of St. George before the battle of Antioch, rudely carved in stone: it contains 400 seats; all are free.

    Notice attached to the door of the church :- THE TYPANUM over this door is of great antiquity and may have been given to the church by William BELET who was rewarded with the Manor of Fordington by William the Conqueror. It is recorded that St George came to the assistance of Crusaders on both the 1st and 3rd Crusades. If Belet went on the 1st Crusade it would seem that he was being hard pressed by Saracens at the battle of Doryloeum in 1097 when St George came to his aid. He and his squire have fallen on their knees in thankfulness.

    The registers date from the year 1705. The living is a vicarage, average tithe rent-charge£170, gross yearly value £300, net £242, with residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Salisbury, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Sidney BOULTER M.A. of Keble College, Oxon. The churchyard has been enlarged, and is under the control of a Burial Board of 7 members.
    5. West Fordington is an ecclesiastical parish, formed in 1847 from the parish of Fordington. Christ Church, half a mile north-west of the town, was erected in 1846: it is a plain but well-proportioned building of Portland stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave and transepts, with small turret and one bell: it contains 400 seats, which are all free and unappropriated. The register dates from the year 1846. The living is a vicarage, gross yearly value £304, net £190, in the gift of the vicar of Fordington, and held since 1894 by the Rev. John Marshall COLLARD M.A. of St. John's College, Cambridge.
    The Catholic church dedicated to Our Lady of the Martyrs is in Princes street, and has 50 sittings.
    The Wesleyan chapel in South street, was built in 1875 in the Italian style, at a cost of £4,000: the architect was Mr. W. S. Allardyce.
    Dorford Baptist chapel, Durngate street, dates from 1648.
    The Congregational chapel, South street, was originally founded in 1700; and
    The Primitive Methodist chapel, Durngate street, was erected in 1875.
    The Brethren have a meeting room in South street.
A cemetery of 5 acres, in the Weymouth avenue, was formed in 1856 at a cost of £4,000 ; it contains 2 mortuary chapels and is under the control of a Burial Board of 15 members.

The Corn Exchange, erected in 1867, is a commodious building of brick with stone dressings, and is octagonal at the end, the roof being open timbered, covered with slate and glass, supported on lofty semicircular iron and moulded wood principals, the ends of which are domed: a gallery is formed under the same: a thorough system of ventilation and heating has been adopted: the cost of the work amounted to about £2,500.

The Market House, in the North square, adjoining the Corn Exchange, is a small building of stone and brick, and was built by Samuel SLADE, in 1848, from designs by Benjamin Ferrey esq. in the Elizabethan style, and rearranged in 1867. The market days are Wednesday and Saturday. A Cattle Market was laid out with sheds near the station in 1877. Auctions are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, conducted by Messrs. Ensor, Henry Duke and Son, Mr. Giles SYMONDS, of Sydling, and Mr. G. J. SAMPSON, of Maiden Newton. The fairs are held February 14th, July 6th, August 6th and October 25th, for horses, sheep and cattle: there is also a large fair held at Poundbury, about half a mile from the town, principally for horn ewes, on the last Thursday in September.

The County Hall, in High East street, is a spacious and well-arranged building fronted with Portland stone: the assizes, quarter -session and county courts are held. there.

Her Majesty's Prison in North square, on the site of the ancient castle, was originally erected in 1793. Since the transfer from the county authorities, it has been entirely rebuilt and now contains 161 cells in two wards with rotunda in centre; provision is also made for adding another ward if necessary.

The Dorset County Museum, built from the designs of Messrs. G. C. Crickmay and Son, was opened on New Year's Day, 1884, by the Earl of Shaftesbury. The total cost of the building was £6,500; it was originally founded about 1844; the collection embraces some specimens of fossils of the county, flint implements, and some antiquities.

A statue was unveiled here in Feb. 1889, to the Rev. William BARNES B.D. the Dorsetshire poet, for many years rector of Winterborne Came; this memorial, erected at a cost of £400 provided by subscription, represents him in his accustomed dress with knee breeches and buckled shoes, and has on the pedestal the dates of birth (1801) and death (1886) and some lines from his "Poems in the Dorset dialect."

Dorchester is the depot of the 39th Regimental District (Dorsetshire Regiment) of the Southern military district, comprising the 1st battalion (39th Foot), and battalions (54th Foot) and 3rd battalion, Dorsetshire Militia.
The Artillery Barracks and military depot are situated at the western extremity of the town on the St. Martin's road. The A Squadron of the Dorset (Queen's Own) Yeomanry Cavalry is stationed in the town. The Soldiers' Home, in North square, was founded in the year 1885, in memory of Major. Gen. Sir Herbert STEWART K.G B., it is open to all soldiers, who are provided with a coffee bar, reading room, library, bath room, lavatory, recreation and smoking room, bible class and mission room. There is also a public coffee bar intended specially for market people and working men, with stables and accommodation for. their horses. Besides this there are bedrooms and coffee and smoking rooms for the general public. Gospel or temperance meetings are held nearly every night in the mission rooms, and are well attended. The management of the house, is in the hands of a committee. The institution is partly supported by subscriptions.

The charities of the town consist of three almshouses: Napier"s Almshouse, in South street, which is liberally endowed, was founded by Sir Gerard NAPIER for the support of ten poor men, who also receive 6s. a week, and have a piece of ground which they cultivate; this building is kept in excellent repair: Whetstone's Almshouse, are for four aged men and their wives, with a stipend of 4s. 6d. a week; and Chubb's Almshouse, for nine poor women, who receive 2s 6d. a week each.

The Dorset County Hospital, in Princes street, is in the Tudor style, and was established in 1841, a wing was added in the year 1866; at present it has beds for 50 patients, with a daily average of 46, but possesses ample room for a larger number.

The neighbourhood abounds with Roman antiquities.
About a quarter of a mile south of the town is Mambury Rings, the Roman amphitheatre, formed of raised mounds of earth, not entirely enclosing the interior space, as there is an opening at the north between their sloping points; the largest external diameter is 343 feet, the shortest 339 feet, so that externally it is nearly a circle; it is supposed that in the thickest part of the sides were the dens for the wild beasts, that they might be let out opposite to each other to meet in the arena; it is computed that 12,000 persons could witness the combats.

About 2 miles south-west of the town, in the parish of Winterborne St. Martin, is Maiden Castle, an ancient " and extensive camp, situated on a hill" overlooking the surrounding country; it is encircled by gigantic entrenchments and ramparts; on the top is a table-land of oval shape, a mile in circumference; the whole space, to the foot of the outer entrenchment is 120 acres; it is one of the strongest of these fortified camps in England; this vast work is by most antiquarians considered to be Celtic, but by some it is attributed to the Romans; the latter people certainly occupied it, for relics of undoubtedly Roman buildings have been found there by Mr. Cunnington; in the adjoining district are many barrows.

Poundbury, half a mile west of the town, is another encampment, with immense earthworks thrown up, nearly square, the top of which comprises 20 acres of land; several stone coffins and other antiquities have been found at different times. The whole country north and south of the river is traversed by Roman roads, and here are Sites of Roman establishments, as Stinsford, Stafford, Burton, Wrackleford, Stratton, Sonthover, Bradford, Woodsford. Lawrence Barrow is half a mile south-east; Conquer Barrow, 1 mile south-east; Frome Hill, 1½ miles south-east.
