Shillingstone is featured in the Domesday Book of 1086 as a settlement of just 46 households, with meadow, woodlands and a mill. Its name is a derivation of Eschelling’s (or Ascelin’s) town. It once had the tallest maypole in Dorset – 86 feet (26 metres) high! An agricultural community, it mainly specialised in the production of moss.
In the first World War, Shillingstone earned the title, “the bravest village in Britain”, due to the high proportion of residents that volunteered to join the armed forces. Shillingstone Parish Council now meets monthly to discuss planning applications, maintenance of allotments and the local recreation ground, and other local amenities.
Shillingstone railway station is still intact on the former line of the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway, now part of the North Dorset Trailway. The station is one of the most well-preserved on the Somerset and Dorset line since it’s closure in 1966. It opened on Monday 31 August 1863 and closed just over a century later on Sunday 6 March 1966. Now, the station is undergoing extensive restoration by the Shillingstone Station Project, supported by the North Dorset Railway Trust.
