Hardy's Cottage, Higher Bockhampton, Dorset
Hardy's Cottage, Higher Bockhampton, Dorset
Two cottages built by Thomas Hardy's ancestors; Hardy's parents lived in the one to the left, and his grandmother in the one to the right. The two cottages were combined to form the larger building, which is only one room deep, and has a footpath running behind it. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) was born in the middle upstairs room. His novels "Under the Greenwood Tree" and "Far From the Madding Crowd" were written here.
