Bindon was a liberty in the county of Dorset, England, containing the following parishes:

Liberties were areas of widely variable extent which were independent of the usual system of hundreds and boroughs for a number of different reasons, usually to do with peculiarities of tenure. Because of their tenurial rather than geographical origin, the areas covered by liberties could either be widely scattered across a county or limited to an area smaller than a single parish.

Bindon was a collection of widely scattered parishes.
