French Farm in Wimborne St Giles - its origins?
« on: Wednesday 06 November 13 22:03 GMT (UK) »
Hi, Everyone,
I was wondering whether anybody with local knowledge of the area knows about how long French Farm in Wimborne St Giles has been there, or has indeed had that name associated with it.
Many thanks,
Keith

Hi, Nanny Jan,
I don't know how I managed to do that - convinced I was doing it on the Dorset boards!  Anyway, thanks very much for responding to my wide of the target post...
