Milton Abbas Local History Group, Dorset, UK

Place Names of Dorset, Part 3

This marvellous book has an amazing amount of information. Part 3 covers Whiteway Hundred which includes Milton Abbas and the adjoining parishes of Woolland, Stoke Wake, Hilton and Ibberton.

It details the origins of place names, road and track names and field names from the earliest written record of each name, and is densely packed with references to original documents.

It would be of great value to our history if we could map all these names and locations and their changes over time in the parish of Milton Abbas.

This volume is available on Abe Books for a reasonable price, and can be borrowed from Libraries West.
