 Set back from a bend of River Thames is Dorchester-on-Thames. Settlements have existed in this spot since Neolithic times. In the 7th Century Dorchester became a religious center and in the 12th Century its abbey was founded. Today Dorchester’s abbey is the primary attraction of this small, quiet town.
