Ringwood companies in Dorset

The eleventh century name of Ringwood was "Rincevede" which seems to have meant a ford or "wade" (vede) over a river or watercourse (rine). The modern spelling of the name has suggested to many people the idea of a place ringed by trees, and either meaning is valid, since the River Avon is still much in evidence, though bridged, and the growing population has pushed the encircling trees further from the centre of the town. Monmouth House near the Market Place is said to have lodged James, Duke of Monmouth after the battle of Sedgemoor. A weekly market is held on Wednesdays in the Market Place and the town celebrated the 750th anniversary of the Market Charter in 1976.
