Fire Monument, Blandford Forum
The Bastard brothers, John and William, local architects, entrepreneurs and politicians, were responsible for the rebuilding programme after the fire of 1731. The completion of the programme was commemorated by the erection of the Fire Monument. Designed and paid for by John Bastard and located on the eastern side of the market place in 1760, it stands "in grateful Acknowledgement of the Divine Mercy, that has raised this Town, like a phoenix from its ashes, to its present beautiful and flourishing State."
