More about this scene


Caption for Aldershot, St Michael's Parish Church c1950: Alderholt is probably Dorset's easternmost village. Its boundaries brush hard against the borders of neighbouring Hampshire. The heathland all around is still relatively unspoiled, and rich in archaeology. Forty years ago the post office served as a motor garage, complete with petrol pumps.
