Charlton Down is a new village built around a former Victorian psychiatric facility known as Herrison Hospital, which closed its doors in 1992. The three main hospital buildings, built between 1864 and 1904, now each house 70 high-spec apartments, sympathetically converted to make the most of the beautiful period features inside and out. Roughly 400 modern, cottage-style three, four and five-bedroom houses make up the rest of the village.

Charlton Down is a village that encourages a sense of community through the shared enjoyment of green spaces – with which it is both interspersed and surrounded. The village has its own nature area, open to the public; a community orchard; allotments; more than one children’s play area; outdoor tennis courts and a thriving cricket club. There is also a state-of-the-art health and fitness centre, a village shop/post office and an architecturally striking village hall offering a comprehensive calendar of clubs and events. Less than four miles drive from central Dorchester, Charlton Down is also within easy reach of the excellent schools, employment opportunities and amenities the county town has to offer.
