Pilsdon is a hamlet and civil parish in the West Dorset district of Dorset, England. Pilsdon Manor House dates from the start of the 17th century.[1] It was owned by the Wyndham family until 1958, when it became an Anglican religious community, similar in principle to Nicholas Ferrar's 17th-century community at Little Gidding.[2] Dorset County Council's 2013 mid-year estimate of the parish population is 50.[3]
