Winterborne Kingston is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southern England. It lies in the North Dorset administrative district, south of the town of Blandford Forum and northeast of the large village of Bere Regis. It is situated in a winterbourne valley on the edge of the dip slope of the Dorset Downs. In the 2011 census the parish had 282 households and a population of 643. In 2001 it had a population of 613.DescriptionWinterborne Kingston consists of Kingston, which is two thirds of the western area of the parish, and Turberville to the east. Still further east is the hamlet of Winterborne Muston. The River Winterborne which flows through the village is a tributary of the River Stour. As the name implies, the river tends to flow only in winter. Kingston means the King held land here and bourne is an old Dorset word meaning River, thus the name of the village can be translated as Kings Land by the Winter River. Amenities in the village include the Greyhound Inn, the Church of St Nicholas, the village hall and a recreational ground .HistoryIcknield Street, a prehistoric route later used by the Romans, passes through the village, and Roman artefacts have been revealed here in ploughed fields.
