A full exploration of the Hardyan Countryside which would be destroyed by the proposed housing development over the downland to the north of Dorchester, relating especially to The Mayor of Casterbridge, Far from the Madding Crowd, ‘The Three Strangers’, and much of Hardy’s poetry.
Meet at Thomas Hardy’s Statute in the North Walks for an 8.5 mile walk via Coker’s Frome and Kingston Maurward to Waterston Ridge and Fiddler’s Green, then returning via Higher Burton to the water meadows. Due to COVID-19 rules about gatherings of no more than six people, we will be unable to stop at a public house for refreshments. Therefore bringing a packed lunch is advisable.
