NOTES ON SHERBORNE

The Saxons named Sherborne Scir Burne, meaning ‘the place of the clear stream’.

They also made it the capital of Wessex.

Two of King Alfred’s elder brothers, King Ethelbert and King Ethelbald, are buried within the impressive abbey.

The town is full of historic interest with 17th, 18th and 19th century architecture set in unspoilt streets.
