In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described West Moors like this:
WEST MOORS, a r. station in the E of Dorset; on the Salisbury and Dorset railway, 4 miles N NE of Wimborne-Minster.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing West Moors has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of East Dorset. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering West Moors and units named after it.
