There’s been an encouraging response to the digital reconstruction of Shaftesbury Abbey by Bristol University history student Fraser Guard.
A 20-year-old University of Bristol history student has used a video game to help us visualise how impressive Shaftesbury Abbey would have been.
Previously on Alfred, Alex Wynter shared the story behind the Enmore Green memorial that commemorates the Weirs.
Historian Bob Kelley has been investigating the Earls of Shaftesbury, who lived at Wimborne St Giles in East Dorset and have no apparent connection to our town.
Shaftesbury has two main war memorials – at Park Walk and just outside the secondary school. Alfred’s Alex Wynter has been looking at a third memorial, that stands at the bottom of The Knapp in Enmore Green.
