Today we headed inland to the town of Wimborne Minster on the banks of the Stour. The main focus of the town is the Minster of St Cuthberga. The great part of the church was built between 1120 and 1180. The church had major restoration in the 19th century which included the magnificent stained glass windows seen today.

Other interesting features of the church was the orrery clock with the sun symbols marking the hours and the moon symbols marking the days of the month. The church is also famous for its Chained Library but due to local dignitaries visiting the church we were unable to see the library.

The town although small was also nice to walk around.
