The West Country region
Dorset is rich in heritage; the historical roots go deep, beyond Anglo Saxon and Roman influences, earlier even than Iron Age, back to the days when dinosaurs roamed.
West Dorset is a unique part of the country, with a magnificent coastline of some 25 miles made up of rocks and stone that date back 1160 million years. The area was designated a UK World Heritage Site as a result of its Jurassic heritage and is particularly famous for the historic discovery of the world's first Ichthyosaur. With an abundance of fossils, the coastline offers a fantastic opportunity to hunt for undiscovered dinosaur remnants.
Film-makers, TV researchers, poets and authors have all been captivated by the outstanding beauty of Dorset's landscape and coastline. Jane Austen famously set-up home in the county and adaptations of her classic love stories have been filmed on location in Dorset, while Lyme Regis was home to author John Fowles and the movie adaptation of his classic novel, 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' was also filmed locally. Most notably however, Dorset is associated with novelist and poet Thomas Hardy whose tales were based in fictional Wessex with its county town of Casterbridge being the real county town of Dorchester. Scenes from such well-known novels as "Far from the Madding Crowd" are easy to indentify on a visit to the region.
The West Dorset landscape is made up of undulating wooded countryside and the flat expanse of the Blackmore Vale. The impressive Iron Age hill fort of Maiden Castle on the outskirts of Dorchester became occupied circa 4,000BC, and the defences visible today date from around 800BC. The highest hill fort in Dorset, Pilsdon Pen, was excavated in the 1960s and found to contain late Iron Age huts; a visit is rewarded with stunning views from its summit, encompassing many miles.
