Bagber is a hamlet in Dorset, standing about two miles west and northwest of Sturminster Newton.

The hamlet is scattered, consisting of Bagber, Lower Bagber and Bagber Common, which all lie within Sturminster Newton civil parish.

Chapel Row consists of around 10 houses in total, 6 of them being within 300 yards of the main A357. These six date back to the 19th century. The chapel from which Chapel Row was named is now a private house.

The poet William Barnes, who wrote many of his poems in the Dorset dialect, was born in Bagber in 1801.
