This fascinating selection of more than 180 photographs traces some of the many ways in which Blandford has changed and developed over the last century. The almost complete destruction of Blandford Forum by the large scale fire of 1731 and its subsequent rebuilding by John and William Bastard remains the main stamp on the town and makes Blandford Forum a place that visitors come to admire. It is this that leads it to be called A Unique Georgian TownA". Like other towns Blandford Forum has evolved and changed over the years yet it has still managed to retain a great deal of its Georgian architectural heritage. The way in which buildings have been used has changed as the needs of the townspeople have changed, but it still retains the feel of a market town. Its architecture is a feature of the town that has been appreciated and preserved down through the centuries by its residents, and for that we can all be grateful. This fact makes our glimpse of Blandford's past and present a fascinating journey through time.
