Buckland Newton is a village in North Dorset. Situated between Sherborne to the north and the county town of Dorchester to the south, it lies in beautiful countryside under the scarp of the Dorset Downs. The village is situated at the head of the vale of Blackmoor and commands some fine and extensive woodland scenery. The church of the Holy Rood is a Gothic structure, with an embattled tower, five bells, and a short lead-covered spire. Buckland Newton is a timeless place which has known Roman and Saxon habitation. Saxon law was administered by the King and approved by the Witan. Bocland being land given under charter by the King, distinct from folkland occupied by right of common law. As the village grew, it became known as Niweton and Bocland, 'The new town and land held under charter'. Those who love the writings of William Barnes will tarry awhile at a tablet in memory of Thomas Barnes, who died eight years after Shakespeare. He was a wealthy ancestor of William, who was born of a more humble farming family but who made the vale of Blackmoor famous by his poetry. In 1937 Buckland Newton was chosen by the BBC as a typical Dorset village.
