A quaint village in East Dorset, Cranborne is home to a population of just under 800 people. Cranborne has two pubs, a restaurant and a few village stores selling local produce. Here are some key points about Cranborne:
A long time ago this village was once a thriving town, once on a scale similar to Durham!
The village used to be a garrison for troops, dating back to the middle ages, making the population of this time comparable to major English towns and cities.
Cranborne is located on the south-east side of Cranborne Chase, an Area of Natural Beauty (AONB) in Dorset.
Cranborne has a wealth of history you can dive into, from Pagan rings to the Neolithic ages. The Ancient Technology Centre is a great place to bring your children to learn more about the fascinating history here.
Dating back to the Saxon times, the village was first recorded in 1086 in the Domesday Book and was known as ‘Creneburne’.
The 10th century saw the Benedictine abbey was founded.
This was a famous location in the 13th century as King John visited the Cranborne Downs, and the town continued to host many subsequent kings after this; often hosting an excellent market day when a King visited these grounds.
The population around this time was so significant due to the soldiers that were garrisoned there for King John’s arrivals.
The average property price here in Cranborne during March 2020 was £634,382. This is partly to do with the demand for houses in this area, which is high as there are not many if any developments occurring in this area.
The value of properties here has not increased over the past 12 months, with only seven sales occurring in this period. Over the past five years, property prices have increased by 18.73%.
