Gillingham Town Council,
The town of Gillingham is the northern-most town in the county of Dorset in England's South West region. Locals are keen to point out that the name is pronounced with a hard 'G' (as in goal) and not a soft 'G' (as in Germany) as is the case with Gillingham in Kent.
It has both a Roman and Saxon history and was recorded as Gelingeham in the Domesday Book.
