Welcome to Charlton Marshall

Charlton Marshall is a village in north Dorset, England, situated beside the river Stour just over one mile south of Blandford Forum. We have just over 1,000 people living in our active and vibrant community, with many groups and activities on offer (see the Community Directory), frequently meeting in the Village Hall, Church and  Church Rooms, the latter opening daily, Monday to Friday mornings for coffee, cakes and stamps and stationery.

The Charlton Marshall History Project is still collating photos and stories from the past, some of which are available on the website now. The Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway ran through the village until it was closed in 1966, and has now been converted to a section of the North Dorset Trailway, used by the community for walking and cycling in the countryside.

This website supports local community groups, the Parish Council, and businesses in Charlton Marshall, and will continue to develop with your support and contributions. It is currently funded by the Parish Council, although we hope to gather additional support from local business and other services over the coming months. The Business Directory provides details of local services and traders.

We add local news and some Parish Council reports and very importantly, if you are organizing an event in the village, please feel free to arrange for it to be added to the
What's On page.

We rely on your input to keep this site up to date, so please contact us if you can contribute. Also, do let us know if there is anything that you would like to see appearing on the web site.
