Hurn

Hurn is a village and civil parish in southeast Dorset, England, between the River Stour and River Avon in the borough of Christchurch, five miles north east of the Bournemouth town centre. As of 2001, the village has a population of 468. The village is the location of Bournemouth Airport (originally RAF Station Hurn), an important airfield dating to World War II. The village was served by rail from 1863 to 1935, and the station building and platform are extant and used as the Avon Causeway Hotel.

Hurn is listed in the Domesday Book as "Herne" (in the Egheiete Hundred of Hantescire), and was later known in the 13th century as Hyrne and in the 14th century as Hurne. The name is derived from the old English "hyrne", which means a disused part of a field or the land sectioned by an oxbow lake.
