Welcome to Blandford St Mary
Blandford St Mary is a village adjacent to the town of Blandford Forum which is divided by the River Stour. The village is home to the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery & their famous Badger Beers, the firm dates back to 1777 and is now a well-known brand with hundreds of pubs across Southern England. The village has two pub facilities, the Stour Inn and the Brewery Tap, which is situated in the maltings of the older Hall and Woodhouse brewery building.
Within the village lies a primary school (currently rated as Good by Ofsted) starting from reception to year 6, a children’s play park. On the outskirts boasts a Tesco with fuel station, Homebase and public carpark abutting the Stour Meadows, which is a fantastic place to enjoy a walk alongside the River Stour, with two footbridges linking the village to Blandford itself.
The Victorian Brewery site is currently in the process of being redeveloped with plans for approximately 180 new homes, the old brewery building being converted into flats, which have the potential to be something quite special given the buildings architecture and commercial history.
Lower Blandford St Mary is a rural outpost of Blandford St Mary which you will find to the south across the bypass on the A350, with a small church and graveyard. Bellway Homes are currently in the process of building a 350 home development South of the A350 from Lower Blandford St Mary. Additional planning permission is currently being sought for an adjacent field for a further 150 dwellings. Blandford St Mary will grow considerably in size over the next few years.
