  • Notes 
    •        About the parish church at Fordington in the borough of Dorchester:
             Fordington, deriving its name from the ford over the river Frome, is a parish in the Union of Dorchester, Dorchester Division within the borough of Dorchester. the ancient parish church is a cruciform structure, partly of Norman and partly of English architecture.
             The parish church of Fordington was dedicated to St. George in 1505 and was anciently called the church of St. George in Dorchester. It is large and well built, and standing on rising ground, shows itself to much advantage at a great distance. It consists of a chancel, tiled (rebuilt 1750, by Mrs. Pitt the impropriator), a body, transept or cross aisle and a north aisle to the chancel, all covered with lead and compass-roofed. The tower is 80 feet high, adorned with battlements and pinnacles and contains five bells and a clock.
             Little remains of antiquity except the vestiges of a rude lift, near the chancel; and over the porch of the south door, rudely cared in stone the effigies of Saint George on horseback, armed with a lance, in combat; behind him are two figures kneeling, with hands uplifted. On the pulpit is this date 1592.
             The Bishops Transcripts of the ancient parish registers partially exist from 1577, but the parish register dates only from 1704. The living is a vicarage. [WSp 03.]
