Why the Wyvern?

Wyvern LogoThe Wyvern is a heraldic device akin to a dragon and is the symbol associated with the ancient kingdom of Wessex. The borders of the kingdom of Wessex pushed westwards as the Saxon sphere of influence advanced from Hampshire into Dorset and Wiltshire.

Our Wyvern Mount is very special is was found at Monkton up Wimborne by Martin Green when fieldwalking in an area which he is convinced is part of a Deserted Medieval Village. The Mount has been dated to the 11th Century using a good dated Scandinavian parallel.
