Collyer’s Brook – Fontmell’s Special Stream

Collyer’s Brook, the stream that runs through Fontmell Magna, has played an important role in the village’s development.

Alfred speaks with villager Dick Stainer, who lives next to the water course.

He tells us about the history of the brook and some of the incredible wildlife that can be seen in it and along its banks. That’s why the Dorset Wildlife Trust has now set up a reserve on the stream.
