On Remembrance Day, Sherborne observes two minutes’ silence when the Abbey clock strikes eleven.
People come to put crosses for their loved ones in the Field of Remembrance:
And the Sherborne Boys School add their crosses:
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields…
(John McCrae – In Flanders Fields)
Sherborne Castle grounds look stunning this year.
Head Gardener Tim Stiles says that this year’s autumn Castle grounds are the best he has seen for at least 10 years – and he should know(!)
The leaves on the trees come in a huge variety of autumn shades, providing a landscape of amazing colours.

Congratulations to Tim and his (small) team for cultivating and sustaining such a marvellous terrain!
