Wytherson - A history of a Dorset settlement

About Wytherston

Wytherston is now a small part of the parish of Powerstock, but it was once a parish with a chapel of its own, even though it may never have had a population of more than fifty.

There's not a lot of evidence, whether material, oral or written, for Wytherston's past. Just enough survives, however, to offer some idea of its occupation under the Romans, its contribution to the estates of the abbey of Abbotsbury, Stuart (and twentieth-century) music-making, eighteenth-century politics, Victorian farming, 1930s theatricals and modern improvements'.

This richly illustrated account of the settlement shows what can be known of its past, its inhabitants and buildings, the agriculture of its two farms, its fields and trees.
