Dorchester 700 Tapestry

Dorchester 700 Logo The Dorchester 700 Community Tapestry was designed by Suzanne Finch and embroidered, painted and quilted by local volunteers and children from Dorchester's middle schools.

It was created to mark the 700th Anniversary in 2005 of Dorchester's recognition as the County Town of Dorset in the Charter of King Edward I.

It was executed between September 2005 and December 2006 and is on permanent display in the foyer to the Corn Exchange; it can be seen whenever the building is open.  

Please click on the links on the left to see the seven individual panels which make up the Tapestry.
