871 – Highways and Byways in Dorset

I’m a bit stuck at the moment. Stuck, not reading Gilbert’s book. This is becasue all three of my monthly magazines turned up at the same time. I finished Dorset Life last week I’ve just finished reading B&W Photography, and still have Country Walking to go, starting that tonight.

The frustrating thing is (and sadly, it is becoming increasingly frustrating) that I have a teensy little bit of resentment towards my magazines (except Dorset Life, which is a source of much joy) for taking me away from my books. What is also frustrating is that somewhere, I read about the book that is the topic of tonights post. Written by Frederick Treves The Highways and Byways in Dorset, The book only arrived today so I haven’t had much of a chance to do anything more than have a quick look through.

Of course what I did first was to look up what it said about two locatons within the county with which I have a close association; Wareham and Wool. I’ll write about Wareham later. What caught my eye was the comment on the manor house on the tout hill road, next to wool Bridge over the River Frome. It turns out that it is a Jacobean Manor House which Features in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’urbevilles.

This is ine of the things I love about reading newly discovered books. you find out things that are just so interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
