Dorset Architectural Heritage Week is an annual event which aims to stimulate public awareness of Dorset's rich architectural and cultural heritage. The first half of the week is part of the national Heritage Open Days but Dorset contains such a wealth of fascinating architecture that the events continue in the County for a further four days!

This is a chance to visit buildings not normally open to the public, to go on guided walks, hear talks and generally enjoy the County's rich historic environment.

The week-long event is organised and run by East Dorset Heritage Trust and very kindly supported through the generosity of the Institute of Commercial Management. For more information visit

As part of this week Sturminster Newton Mill will be hosting an Open Day.  Recently discovered evidence suggests this mill largely dates from 1566, on a more ancient milling site which could date back to 1016. Powered by a 100 year old turbine the machinery will be running and a supervisor will be in attendance to give extra information.
