DORCHESTER, the county town, a polling place, and place of election for the county, a municipal and parliamentary borough, union, and market town, in the Dorchester petty sessional division, in the diocese of Salisbury, archdeaconry of Dorset, and rural deanery of Dorchester, is 16 miles south-west from Blandford, 15 east from Bridport, 8 north from Weymouth, 18 east-by-south from Beaminster, and 120 from London by the old coach road, but by the railway, through Southampton, 138½ miles. The South Western and the Great Western railways have stations here:

It was one of the strongest and most extensive of the Roman stations, under the name of Durnovaria, and some remains of the Roman walls are yet to be seen, forming part of the garden wall of Mr. Edwin Burnett, in the High West street: it is a regular and well-built town, on the river Frome and Ikening street, and comprises the parishes of St. Peter, Holy Trinity, All Saints, and Fordington . The houses are chiefly modern, built of brick and stone, and comprise three principal streets—viz.. East, West, and South.

The approaches from the London, Bridport and Weymouth roads are through long avenues of sycamore, elm, and chesnut trees; and the south, west, and part of the north sides of the town have walks between avenues of fine trees, forming a beautiful promenade, commanding an extensive prospect over the downs and surrounding country. The town is "well supplied with water, paved, and lighted with gas, and under the management of a Local Board of Health.

The borough is governed by a mayor, four aldermen, and twelve councillors, and formerly returned two members to Parliament, but by The Representation of the People Act, 1867," it now returns one only; the mayor is the returning officer. The police force consists of a superintendent, one sergeant, and six constables.

Dorchester has, with Fordington , four churches and a chapel.
    Holy Trinity, in High West street, is a commodious building: the interior is very neat, and has a fine-toned organ. The register dates from 1653. The living is a rectory, with that of Frome Whitfield annexed, joint yearly value £500, with residence, in the gift of the feoffees of the Free School and Almshouse charities, and held by the Rev. Henry Everett, M.A, of Exeter College, Oxford.

    St. Peter's is a large ancient Gothic pile in the centre of the town: it has a handsome embattled tower, 90 feet high, and 8 bells: it contains several monumental tablets, and an organ. The register dates from 1653. The living is a rectory, yearly value £140, with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. Edmund Ward Pears, M,A,, of Magdalen College, Oxford.

    All Saints' church was rebuilt in 1844: it is a splendid edifice of stone, with lancet windows, and contains a superbly painted window in the chancel, with the effigy of the donor, the Bishop of Salisbury. The register dates from 1653. The living is a rectory, yearly value £84, in the gift of Simeon’s trustees, and held by the Rev. Henry Frederick Jones.

    Fordington church, St. George’s, stands on an eminence: it is an ancient stone structure, originally built in the form of a cross: it has a high embattled tower, with pinnacles, and a clock: over the south porch is a tympanum, representing the vision of St. George before the battle of Antioch, rudely carved in stone. The register dates from 1690. The living is a vicarage, value £325, with residence, in the gift of the prebend of Fordington in Salisbury cathedral, and held by the Rev. Henry Moule, M.A., of at. John's College, Cambridge.

    Christ's church, "West Fordington , half a mile north-west of the town, was erected in 1846; it is a plain but very pretty edifice, with 1 bell. The register dates from the year 1846. The living is a vicarage, yearly value £50, in the gift of the vicar of Fordington , and held by the Rev. William Cook Osborn, M.A of St John’s College, Cambridge.
The Free Grammar school, founded in 1569 by Mr. Hardy. is situated in South street: there is a small Endowed school in Trinity churchyard for the educating and clothing of boys: there are also National schools for boys, girls and infants, and a British school for boys. There are chapels for Baptists, Wesleyans, Independents, and Unitarians.

The new Corn Exchange is a bold and commodious building built in 1867: it is built of brick, with stone dressings, and is octagonal at the end, the roof being open timbered, covered with slate and glass, supported on lofty semicircular iron and moulded wood principals, the ends of which are domed: a gallery is formed under same: a thorough system of ventilation and heating has been adopted : the cost of the work amounted to about £2,500. Wellspring & Son were the builders, and Henry Hall, of London, the architect, The Market House is of stone and brick, and was built by Samuel Slade, in 1848, from designs by Benjamin Ferry, esq., in the Elizabethan style, and re-arranged in 1867. Two markets are held here: the small market on Wednesdays, and the larger one on Saturdays; the latter is well attended. The fairs are held February 14th, July 6th, August 6th, September 29th,and October 25th,for horses, sheep and cattle.

The Union Workhouse, erected in 1836, is a rough stone and brick building, half a mile south-west of the town, in : the open fields. The union includes the following parishes, viz.:—Adminston or Athelhampstone, All Saints (Dorchester), Bradford PeverelL Broadmayne, Burlestone, Charinster, Chilfrome, Compton Abbas, Compton Valence, Dewlish, Fordington, Frampton, Frome Vanchurch.

The assizes are held here, as also the quarter sessions, at the County Hall, which is a spacious and well-arranged building, fronted with Portland stone. The County Gaol is a handsome building, situated on the north side of the town, on the rite of the ancient castle, and was erected in 1793, on the plan of Mr. Howard, at an expense of £16,179, since which it has been enlarged and much improved, extra wings baring been added; it now contains 140 sleeping cells: there are likewise reception cells fitted up in the lodge, a house of correction, and a treadmill: the wings of the prison, although detatched, communicate with the centre building in each story by iron bridges sprung from the several galleries: an entrance, with porter's lodge, and six houses for the turnkeys, have been erected from the north square.

The Dorset County Hospital, in the south part of the town, and in a very healthy situation, was built in 1841 by Samuel Slade and Goddard, from designs by Benjamin Ferrey, esq., in the Tudor style, and a new wing added in the year 1866 ; at present it furnishes accommodation for 60 in door patients, but possesses ample room for a larger number. The Charities of the town consist of three almshouses:— Napier’s Almshouse, in South street, which is liberally endowed, was founded by Sir Gerard Napier for the support of ten poor men, who also receive 4s. 6d. a week, and have a piece of ground, which they cultivate; this building is kept in excellent repair: Whetstone's Almshouse for four aged men and their wives, with a stipend of 4s- 6d. a week; and Chubb's Almshouse, for nine poor women, who- receive 2s. 6d. a week each.

The Cavalry and Militia Barracks are situated at the western extremity of the town. The neighbourhood abounds with Roman antiquities, About a quarter of a mile south of the town is the celebrated Roman amphitheatre: it is formed of raised mounds of earth partly enclosing an open space, but the mounds do not entirely enclose the interior space, as there is an opening at the north between their sloping points: the largest external diameter is 843 feet, the shortest 339 feet, so that externally it is nearly a circle: it is supposed that in the thickest part of the sides were the dens for the wild beasts, that they might be let out opposite to each other to meet in the arena: it is computed that 12,000 persons could witness the combats. About 2 miles south-west of the town is the famous MAIDEN CASTLE, an ancient and extensive Roman camp, situated on an immense hill overlooking the surrounding country: it is encircled by deep intrenchments, and ramparts four deep: on the top is a table-land, of oval shape, covering upwards of 40 acres: the whole space to the foot of the outer intrenchment is 120 acres: it is supposed to be one of the strongest of these fortified castles in England: on tlie adjoining hills are several barrows. POUNDBUBY, half a mile west of the town, is another encampment, with immense earthworks thrown up, nearly square, the top of which comprises 20 acres of land: several stone coffins and other antiquities have been found at different times. The whole country is traversed with Roman roads north and south of the river, and sites of Roman establishments, as Stinsford, Stafford, Burton, Wrackleford, Stratton, Southover, Bradford, Woodsford.
