Transport Services

The NORDCAT Community Transport is available to enable people to get into Sherborne and Yeovil. Their service runs on Tuesday and Saturday to Yeovil and on Thursday to Sherborne and calls at Leigh, Chetnole, Yetminster & Bradford Abbas.

You need to register – 01258 473154 or 472164 for an annual fee of £5 and you can then ring to book a seat – they will collect from your door. The service can get busy so part of the need to book is to enable them to run an extra bus if this is necessary – you need to do this at least the day before you wish to travel.

Please note that although it is primarily service for people over 60 it is available for people of all ages who have difficulty using normal public transport for whatever reason including that there is no other service

Details of the NORDCAT service, including an application form, can be found by clicking here.

Additionally, there is already a Car Share scheme in Dorset, and this may help those who need to make a journey on a non-bus day. Details of this, together with how to register etc. can be found by clicking here which will connect you to the Liftshare log in page – if you are a driver and want to offer a lift you can also register here and there is an App for a mobile phone to make things more flexible and details of this are available on the website.

Finally, do not forget that Helping Hands is there to help with Hospital and other similar appointments, and they can be reached on 01963 210953.


The Heart of Wessex Line, also known as the Bristol to Weymouth Line, is the scenic railway from Bristol to Weymouth connecting communities, cities, market towns and beautiful countryside for visitors and businesses. The line runs from Bristol Temple Meads to Westbury and Weymouth in England. It shares the Wessex Main Line as far as Westbury and then follows the course of the Reading to Taunton Line as far as Castle Cary. More details about the line and the various villages it connects with are available here on the “About Us” pages reached from the Parish Website’s “Welcome” page.

The HoW Line Yetminster station is located at the end of the High Street when travelling towards Leigh. Other nearby stations are at Thornford and at Chetnole. The line connects with Dorchester in the South (where you can change and connect with the Weymouth to London Line ) and Yeovil in the North. Castle Cary connects with the main line to London Paddington. Sherborne Station is on a separate line and connects with London Waterloo, but it is necessary to drive or take a taxi to reach this station. Please note that Yetminster is a “request” stop and the driver must be made aware that you require the train to stop.

The available HoW Line timetable can be viewed here HoW Line TImetable – please note that this timetable may not be up to date and that it is advisable to check the times with the national timetable as below.

Journey time to Dorchester approx  20 minutes ; Journey time to Yeovil approx 10 minutes; journey time to Bristol approx 1 hour 40 minutes to 1 hour 50 minutes.
