Wimborne Minster (church)
Wimborne Minster, known locally as the Minster is dedicated to Saint Cuthburga, sister to Ina, King of the West Saxons who founded a Benedictine nunnery at the site, circa AD705. The atmosphere within the church feels both welcoming and friendly.

The Minster is recognised for its unusual chained library (one of only four in the world), an astronomical clock that predates Galileo and the resting place of King Ethelred of Wessex (AD 871).
