English: Durweston is a village in north Dorset, England, situated on the River Stour where it flows out of the Blackmore Vale through a steep, narrow gap between the Dorset Downs and Cranborne Chase hills, two miles west of Blandford Forum. The village has a population of 429. It was named in the Domesday Book of 1086, with a place-name of Derwinestone or Dervinestone, with references to a mill and vines. Its place name is unique, since there is no other settlement anywhere in the world named Durweston. There was once a coastal minesweeper called "HMS Durweston". She was launched at the Dorset Yacht Company’s Hamworthy yard on 18 August 1955.
