Contribute your own Lost Words, spell-poems and illustrations

We hope you can help us to build this website into a resource of Dorset’s Lost Words, names and sayings that seem to be falling out of use. By building a lexicon of the words and stories related to the places, landscapes and natural world of Dorset that are important to you, we hope such words can be kept alive, used and enjoyed by generations to come.

You can use the Contribute button to submit your own Lost Words, spell-poems and illustrations so that we can add these to the website for others to enjoy.
