Blandford St Mary is a village and civil parish in the North Dorset district of Dorset, England. The village is on the south bank of the River Stour, immediately opposite the larger town of Blandford Forum. The village grew up around the Badger Brewery, owned by Hall and Woodhouse, which is based there.
Blandford St Mary has a great recreation area and Play Area, which has recently been resurfaced and there are future projects to be agreed to improve this area even more. There is a busy Tesco supermarket and fuel station and a Homebase DIY store which attracts shoppers from the many villages that surround the Blandford area. There is a great primary school in the village. An older area of the village near the river bridge to Blandford Forum has a traditional public house and a village green. Opposite is the old stone gate at the entrance of the Bryanston School estate.
Lower Blandford St Mary is a rural outpost of Blandford St Mary, in the farm fields to the south across the bypass road, with a small church and graveyard, and historic houses.
The Parish Council work closely with local residents and other local organisation’s to make sure that the Council are providing the best service they can for their residents.
