Old Maps of Wimborne Minster

Historic Maps of Wimborne Minster and the local area.

I can remember when this was the main A31! Yes it is very difficult to imagine now that all the traffic from East to West came along this road as well as the traffic from West to East, that is both ways! Yes ALL the traffic as there was no by-pass in those days!! When the volume of vehicles increased, because the road was very narrow, the first shop on the right, after what was Rodways garage, was demolished. This was in the 1960's. Pauline Stevens.

Does anyone have a picture of the front door with the sign on? Needed for the replica at Wimborne Model Town
