Enjoy the architectural culture of Blandford Forum

When it comes to choosing a new home, many people will have a differing opinion on what is important, mainly due to their own circumstances and what is most important to them at that particular time in their life.

For those with a family, schools and safety, such as being away from busy main roads, may be a paramount factor when they come to choosing a new location, while young high-flyers will be looking for proximity to the city and transport links. For older people, however, the best choice may be to pick somewhere where this is potential for a bit of peace and quiet in their old age, as well as the chance to enjoy some cultural history.

The town of Blandford Forum in Dorset offers just these opportunities for those who are perhaps looking towards where they might spend their retirement.

Those looking for property for sale in Blandford Forum, will find a small town with a population of just over 8,000 people. Such a small population in the seaside county of Dorset. This means that for older people in particular, they can find a place where there is little chance of noise pollution and trouble, allowing them somewhere where they can relax in their latter years.

Blandford Forum also has a Tesco and a Morrison's, which means that older people will not have to travel too far when they need to do their shopping.

The town is also well known for its Georgian architecture, part of the culture that those with a bit of time in their hands can look to take in as they go about their business in the small Dorset town.

Because of a 19th century fire in Blandford Forum, the full town centre had to be rebuilt at one time in the 1800s. This has left the town centre uniformly Georgian, making it a shining example of this kind of architecture, and a stunning sight to behold.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801259266-ADNFCR
