That badge was discussed on the forum a couple of years back, I don't think it came to any result.

It's definitely the Minster in Wimborne. Same aspect as on the bowling club badge.

It is the exact same badge, it has the same tarnish marks in the same places.

Hi Phil,
I do believe you are correct it certainly appears to be the same "well travelled" badge.
Nice item but still a bit of a mystery!
