Sturminster, Newton Castle, a market town and parish in the hundred of Sturminster, Newton Castle, Sherborne division, 8 miles from Shaftesbury, and 108 from London, contained in 1831, 1831 inhabitants, and was assessed in 1815, to £3,406. It is situated on the river Stour, part on the right and part on the left bank, connected by a good stone bridge, and consists of old low-built houses, with the exception of a few in the central part of the town. The market-house is a long high building, the ground floor of which is used chiefly for shambles, and the upper part occupied by warehouses. The only manufacture here is that of white baize. The markets are held on Thursday, and the fairs on May 12th and October 24th. The petty sessions for the hundred are held here, and a court leet annually, at which a constable and tything men are appointed. The living is a vicarage in the patronage of Lord Rivers, value £16 16s 8d. K.B., and £902 in 1835. The church, dedicated to St Mary, ia a spacious and venerable structure. There is a chapel for Wesleyan Methodists, and also a national school for the education of children of both sexes. The Dorset and Somerset canal passes to the east of the town. The castle, supposed to be orginally erected by the Romans, is now completely in ruins. Its ground plan is the form of the letter D. The remains consist of a small artificial mount or keep, within a vallum, and deep ditch, seated on a hill, on the Newton side of the river.
