Help tell the story behind town estate

It's the largest housing district in Weymouth and behind every door there's a story.

It has a rich history too, and everyone from the Australian soldiers who camped there to the landlord of the Rock Hotel who pulled pints and the stonemasons who chipped away at the blocks of St Paul's Church have contributed to the development.

It is 125 years since the name Westham was first mooted by town planners and the occasion is to be marked with a celebration on Saturday, April 26 at Conifers School.
