Rodden Row – Abbotsbury, Dorset.

The village of Abbotsbury comprises a main road of stone houses, many of which are thatched, with some dating from the 16th century.

The village is surrounded by hills on all sides, except to the east; in 1905 Sir Frederick Treves described Abbotsbury as being “very pleasantly situated among the downs”. Dorset-born broadcaster and writer Ralph Wightman described the village as “possibly the most interesting in Dorset”.
