Surrounded by a National Landscape and Dorset Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve heathland, Winfrith Newburgh is a pretty, village in the heart Purbecks. While offering a taste of the rural Dorset idyll, Winfrith is surprisingly well equipped, with amenities including a popular public house, a post office, and numerous arts and sports clubs.
Just outside the village are excellent walking and cycling routes, the Dorset Green Technology Park, and easy access to the Saxon walled town of Wareham and the county town of Dorchester.
The name Winfrith derives from the river Win, which runs through the village. In 1086 in the Domesday Book it was recorded as Winfrode, and Bolla the priest held the manor. It was later granted to Robert de Neubourg, whose descendants were Lords of the Manor until the death of Sir Roger Newburgh in 1514. The family name is incorporated into the village’s name. The lordship then passed, along with the Newburghs’ foundation of Bindon Abbey, to the Marney family, and then to the Poynings and the Howards, before being purchased by the Weld family in 1641.
The ancient road from Dorchester to Wareham ran through the centre of the village. However this was replaced by a turnpike (now the A352 road) in the 18th century, and the village is now south of the main road. The Red Lion Inn marks the turn to the village. North of the road is the hamlet of East Knighton. The hamlet of East Burton, further east, was formerly in the parish of Winfrith Newburgh, but is now part of Wool.
