Bluebells and beech trees at Lewesdon Hill

Broadwindsor is a lively and lovely village on the western edge of West Dorset.

Nestling in the folds of the twin peaks of Lewesdon Hill and Pilsdon Pen, the village is more than just a village. It’s a community where people make things happen.

We have a church, village hall, primary school, pub, shop, post office facilities, playing field, craft centre, craft centre and village green.

This website is aimed at anyone who is interested in what’s going on in Broadwindsor and the surrounding area. It was set up and is managed on a voluntary basis by Margery Hookings, who has lived in the village since 2001. If you’d like to add something to it, please email margery.hookings@gmail.com

If you’re interested in Broadwindsor’s history – and the village has lots of it – get yourself a copy of My Story by Leonard Studley.

And if you fancy a tour of our own twin peaks – the highest in Dorset – take a look at this YouTube video by musician and spaniel owner Simon Emmerson, who composed the music.

    I miss Broadwindsor. My Mother, Diane Margaret Crabb was born in the village, her Father was Edward James Crabb, known as Jim, her Mother was Edna.

    My Grandad, Jim, was a bell ringer at the church for many years. My Granny attended church in that beautiful church faithfully, and as a young girl I always dreaded having to attend !

    We scattered my Mum’s ashes on Pilsdon Hill, I miss Broadwindsor.

    Lots of Love,

    Hannah Bradley xx
