Child Okeford is a picturesque village nestled amongst the captivating landscape of the Blackmore Vale in the heart of the North Dorset countryside. Hambledon Hill lies to the east , the River Stour to the west and the village is in easy reach of the market towns of Shaftesbury, Blandford and Sturminster Newton. Although a rural community, there are lots of events going on and the village is home to a thriving artistic community.
Child Okeford was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Acford and appears in two entries. It had 39 households and a total taxable value of 10 geld units. By 1227 the village was known as Childacford. The village’s name derives from the Old English cild, meaning a noble-born son, plus ac and ford, also Old English, meaning an oak-tree ford. The noble-born son likely referred to an early owner.
Child Okeford is rich with history; in 1645 Hambledon Hill was the site of a battle in the English Civil War. Under the leadership of the rector of nearby Compton Abbas, 2,000 men assembled on the hill and defied Oliver Cromwell’s requests to lay down their arms. Cromwell sent in troops and defeated them, then locked up 300 prisoners in the church at Iwerne Courtney.
