Iwerne Minster is a village and civil parish in Dorset, It lies on the edge of the Blackmore Vale, approximately midway between the towns of Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. The A350 main road between those towns passes through the edge of the village, just to the west. The village boasts a Village Store and a popular Inn, The Talbot.

The parish church, dedicated to St Mary, has a nave, north aisle and north transept dating from the mid-12th century, though it is probable there was a Minster and clergy community here before that, as indicated by the village's name and its large size in the Domesday Book.

Iwerne Minster House was built in 1796 by the Bowyer Bower family (who had owned the village and estate of Iwerne Minster since at least 1645), on the site of their original manor. Their family crest, the Talbot, is still represented in the name of the village pub. Baron Wolverton had a new house built, which was completed in 1878. The house has gone through many changes over the years and is now home to Clayesmore School.
