Pimperne (/ˈpɪmpərn/ PIM-pərn) is a village and civil parish in north Dorset, England, situated on Cranborne Chase two miles (three kilometres) northeast of the town of Blandford Forum. In the 2011 census the civil parish had 478 households and a population of 1109.[1]

The first records of Pimperne go back to the Domesday Book in the late 11th century, where it is recorded as "Pinpre",[2] but it is believed that the village goes back to Anglo-Saxon times. A Bronze Age settlement was discovered in the barrows to the north of the village. A house found in this has been used as the model for all Bronze Age houses, including the reconstruction at Butser Ancient Farm, Hampshire. The parish church of St Peter was rebuilt by Lord Portman of Bryanston in 1872–4, though some Norman features from the previous building, such as the font and chancel arch, were retained.[2]

Pimperne is centred on its two pubs and the parish church. Other amenities are found in nearby Blandford Forum.

Pimperne parish is within the Cranborne Chase electoral ward, which extends north eastwards through Tarrant Hinton to Ashmore. The ward had a population of 1,993 in the 2011 census[3] and is part of the constituency of North Dorset, which is currently represented in the UK parliament by the Conservative Simon Hoare.[4]
