Situated in West Dorset, Cerne Abbas is just six miles north of Dorchester. In 2008 it was voted Britain’s ‘Most Desirable Village’, something that the 800 residents will not argue with.
It is particularly notable because of the Cerne Abbas Giant, an ancient chalk figure of a giant naked man on the local hillside. Originally built around a Benedictine abbey, it thrived as a market town although much of its wealth came from brewing a high quality beer, which was sold nationwide as well as being exported.
When the railways bypassed Cerne Abbas in the 19th century the village went into decline. By the end of the century the population has halved and houses and been abandoned in disrepair. These days though it has its own post office, a local school, tearooms, 3 historic pubs and several other shops.
Apart from the giant, tourists are drawn to the area by the streets of historic stone houses, the abbey, the music festival and the church.
It might be ones of the best villages in the country, but that does not mean it is immune to accidents. Sometimes they happen and people are injured through no fault of their own. It is probably a waste of time searching for a personal injury solicitor in Cerne Abbas if you want to make a compensation claim.
