The Stours is a grouped Parish Council, situated in North Dorset and includes the four parishes of East Stour, Stour Provost, Todber and West Stour. The river Stour is a major influence on the four parishes that make up the parish council and from which the council gets its name. The four parishes do, however, have their own unique characteristics - go to 'Our Villages' to find out more.
