Category:Compton Abbas

English: Compton Abbas is a village in north Dorset, England, situated in the Blackmore Vale next to Cranborne Chase, on the A350 road three miles south of Shaftesbury. The village has a population of 200 (2001). The village gives its name to a nearby airfield on the downs. The name Compton Abbas is derived from the Saxon nomenclature "cumb-ton" (meaning 'village in a narrow valley'), and "abbas" refers to the abbey at Shaftesbury (the land was owned by the abbess). The church, St. Mary's, was built in 1866 to replace the older structure which was more remote from the village.
