    I had five years of my childhood just outside Sherborne, with many a summer trip down to Weymouth.

    I was born in Dorset, Spetisbury. Idyllic childhood location at the time - late 50s and early 60s. We actually had village outings where the entire village went on a bus to Lyme Regis or Sandbanks every year. There were steam trains passing through until Beaching shut the station. It was all conkers, blackberries, minnows, the watercress beds and going to Blandford to the Corn Exchange to buy butter. (cinema/five woodbines/fish and chips/change from a shilling etc)

    What's that big old style hotel on the sea front. The one with the columns? was there a couple of years ago just before Christmas. Queen Vic or something... Esplinade was alright, albeit grey and cold then...

    Used to go to Weymouth a lot as a kid. I was briefly allergic to Dorset though for a while. Astmah like symptoms, Dr gave me the blue and brown enhalors. Different pollon.

    They do love a festival down here, although they can seem a bit meh when you're used to Notting Hill and Lambeth Country Show.

    They also really like dressing up in costumes - do you have your pirate costume sorted yet? When I met the mayor of Portland, he was dressed as a pirate.

    I see that Weymouth and Portland voted 61% in favour of brexit on a 75% turnout :hmm:

    Mind you Dorset is racist as fuck, Spymaster posted something to that effect recently

    It is pretty white here tbf

    That's the bit that makes me want to leave, it's so right wing here. Very depressing.

    I've just come back from two days walking in northern Dorset along the Wessex Ridgeway. I walked 30 miles from Ludwell over Hambledon Hill through the Dorsetshire Gap ending up in the delightfully named village of Plush.

    I think its quite rare to hear Dorset called 'Dorsetshire'
