"Everybody tells you Dorset is a house or mansion county, not a church county...Yet when one sets down all one has seen of Dorset churches,..one suddenly realizes how much one has enjoyed", wrote Pevsner at the conclusion of his journey. The county provides many unexpected pleasures in ecclesiastical buildings, from the Norman arches of Wimborne Minster, the Early English solemnity of Milton Abbey, to the splendour of Sherborne and the monuments and furnishings of numerous smaller buildings. Of castles, mansions and houses, Dorset boasts the evocative ruins of Corfe; the splendid Kingston Lacy; mighty Milton Abbey House and a wealth of more modest homes. But the county also possesses fine towns and villages, from the Georgian elegance of Weymouth and Lyme Regis, to the the model estate village of Milton Abbas.

Whilst dominated by the ex-London & South Western Railway main lines from Weymouth and Portsmouth towards London, the coastal counties of Hampshire and Dorset also included numerous railway byways, many of which are now but a memory. These lines included the branch to Hayling Island, long the home of ex-London, Brighton & South Coast Railway 'Terrier' class 0-6-0s, the isolated network on the Isle of Wight, the Weymouth Quay line, and the branches to Swanage, Lyme Regis and Bridport. Although traffic on the main line, by the late 1950s and early 1960s, was largely in the hands of the Bulleid-designed 'Pacifics', elsewhere the region saw many other types surviving, such as the Adams 'Radial' tanks on the Lyme Regis branch and the 0-4-0Ts on the Isle of Wight. Among those enthusiasts recording the scene during the last decade of team operation was the late Norman Lockett. Travelling widely through the region, he captured the last years of both main line and branch steam in colour. Now held by his son, David, Norman Lockett's invaluable archive helps paint a portrait of steam on BR during this long lost era. In Steam around the Hampshire & Dorset Coast, Mike Arlett has selected some 85 colour illustrations from the collection, portraying the varied steam operation in the period up to 1967. With comprehensive and detailed captions, the book is a graphic reminder of the railway scene some 35 years ago. For all those interested in the history of steam in Southern England, this book is a wonderful reminder of the days when it was still possible to travel by steam train to coastal destinations such as Lyme Regis.

Prehistoric war-god, 17th century marvel or living monument? In 1996 archaeologists, historians and anthropologists presented evidence at a "trial" of the Giant in Cerne Abbas Village Hall, arguing for various dates for its creation: Iron Age, or Medieval, or some other date and significant simply for the fact that it exists and is still a vital aspect of the local community. This is the book of the trial ... with the witnesses presenting their evidence in full. An epilogue contains the jury's decision, and an account of the trial's filming for a regional BBC programme.
