Sherborne is a postcard of upper and middle-class tranquillity in Dorset. Famous for its historic abbey and private schools. But Sherborne is a Potemkin town. Look beyond the superficiality and the poverty is very real.
Sherborne is renowned in the region for the strength of its independent shops and market... If Tesco builds a store on such an arterial highway, beyond any scale known to the town and demolishing a hotel in the process, it would have a devastating effect.
