Archaeology and history of the Sandford area

The name Sandford comes from the sandy ford which crossed the stream draining Morden Bog, a stream now crossed by a bridge at the bottom of the dip between The Gurkha and Wareham Golf Club. The origins of the present village go back to the middle of the 19th century; before then, maps show the name Sandford on the Wareham side of the dip!
