Fiddleford is a small Hamlet situated between Sturminster Newton and Okeford Fitzpaine in North Dorset, UK. It was founded by an English nobleman named Fitela (Fitela's Ford), and the aforementioned ford is over the River Stour. Fiddleford is home to around 25 houses, the Fiddleford Inn and a large successful mushroom farm. In the hamlet there is also the beautiful mill and weir and the Fiddleford Manor, one of the oldest buildings in Dorset, probably dating from around 1370 and built by William Latimer, Royal Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset.
