Blandford, more formally known as Blandford Forum, is a town in Dorset.
It is known for a biting insect, the Blandford Fly, which has occasionally caused fatalities.
It was burned down in the eighteenth century and rebuilt in a unified classical style by the Bastard brothers.
The current Marquess of Blandford, heir to the Duke of Marlborough, has in the past had problems with heroin and cocaine. He has managed to stay out of the headlines in recent years so perhaps he has been cured of his addiction.
