The National Trust owned property Kingston Lacy is just a few miles North West of Wimborne in the direction of Badbury Rings. Dating from the Iron Age, a period spanning the years from 800BC to immediately prior to the Roman occupation in AD43, the hill fort at Badbury was constructed on a site that was certainly occupied from much earlier times. This can be seen by the four Bronze Age (2200BC-800BC) round barrows, the most notable of which are the three that lie just to your right as you travel up the track to the present car park.
A warm welcome awaits you in this glorious part of Dorset.
