Beaminster town centre is changing. After a long period of stress caused by the recession and disastrous events such as the closure of Beaminster Tunnel, following a landslip that killed two people, the town is in an intense state of flux. In the first of a series of articles looking at Beaminster’s prospects, The Yarn has been talking to people starting up new enterprises and hearing from respected figures around the town about local issues and ideas for improvements.
Few of these matters are simple, so we’ve gone into some detail, to help readers get under the skin of the town. We also hope to inspire people to visit Beaminster. Despite some of the problems outlined here, it is a fantastic place. Let us know what you think by writing to The Yarn — and don’t miss more on Beaminster in our next issue.
