Thomas Hardy country

This is the Marshwood Vale in Dorset – the county where I live in south-west England. It is the area which Thomas Hardy called Wessex (the land of the West Saxons) in his novels (remember “Tess of the d’Urbervilles”, “Far from the Madding Crowd”?)

In the background is the sea of Lyme Bay and the fossil-rich Jurassic Coast.
