Evershot, Dorset

Evershot is a lovely village where little has changed over the last century. In his novels and short stories, Thomas Hardy called it, ‘Evershead’.

In ‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’, Tess stops here for refreshments on her way to and from Beaminster. The cottage can be seen up the hill from St. Osmund’s Church.

The Acorn Inn is Hardy’s, ‘Sow and Acorn’, mentioned in both, ‘A Group of Noble Dames’ and ‘Interlopers at the Knap’.

 

About The Photographer

Alison Avery

I enjoy visiting different parts of England and Wales and capturing the beauty of our countryside, coast and villages. Many of the places that I have recorded, are where I had happy family holidays with my mother, husband and son. I hope that you enjoy looking at the photos of beautiful England on my website.
