Sited in a valley among Dorset’s chalk hills in a National Landscape, Dewlish derives its name from the stream running through the village, ominously known as Devil’s Brook. Though the village was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, it now offers a mix of historic and modern homes, along with a village hall central to the community, a well-regarded public house and All Saints Church, with its two Norman doorways and Norman font.
In 1740, evidence of a large Roman villa was discovered in the village on the site of what is now Dewlish House. Documented as having 24 rooms and being ‘sixty-five paces by fifteen’ in size, its most well-recorded surviving feature was a tessellated floor depicting a leopard leaping upon a gazelle. Over the years, excavation of the hills above Dewlish has revealed Bronze Age urns, ashes and a dagger, among other items, but the most remarkable treasure discovered here is undoubtedly the ‘Dewlish Elephants’. The bones and tusks of these two pre-Ice Age mammoths were unearthed in the 19th Century and are now on display in Dorset County Museum, Dorchester.
Just over eight miles from Dorchester and less than three from the transport hub of the A35, Dewlish is within easy reach of the amenities of modern life, while being delightfully secluded and tranquil – a real rural idyll.
