EnvironmentCerne Abbas is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset. It lies in the West Dorset administrative district in the Cerne Valley in the Dorset Downs. The village of Cerne Abbas grew up around Cerne Abbey, which was founded there in ad 987 and attracts many tourists, who are drawn by the Cerne river, streets lined with historic stone houses, the Abbey, the Giant, and various events including a classical music festival. The village has a local first school, a post office, three historic public houses, tearooms and a number of other shops. It is notable as the location of the Cerne Abbas Giant, a chalk figure of a giant naked man on a hillside, owned by the National Trust, thought by many to be an Iron Age fertility symbol but, as it is unlikely that the monks of Cerne Abbey would have tolerated such a figure, and with no records before the 17th century, this cannot be confirmed.
