Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy Tour
I have just received a most gratifying email from one of the people on my Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy Tour
'I've sent off a rave review of your knowledge and guiding skills to Road Scholar and ordered two of your books. I'm appreciative of Road Scholar choosing you as our literary mentor on the Literature on Site southwest England trip recently completed.
What is most impressive from my point of view is that it is from a professor of English and of Women's Studies '
The tour takes in Steventon, Bath, Wincester, and Chawton.
The Hardy Section is based in Dorchester and visits the Birthplace, Max Gate, Stinsford, Puddleton, Sherborne, Marnhull, Sturminster Newton, Maiden Castle, Maumbury Rings and Dorchester.
In between we spend a couple of days with Agatha Christie in Torquay, and on Dartmoor with Sherlock Holmes. We end with a Dickens and Holmes Day in London
Exhausting but very rewarding.
