Thomas Hardy walks 15 Sept 2008
Pam Ayres
Tess of the d'Urbervilles

As an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles begins on BBC TV, filmed on location in the West Country, around the landscape that Hardy knew and loved, we discuss some of Hardy's most memorable female characters and visit the countryside which they inhabited. In today's walk we follow in the footsteps of the character of Tess. Fiona Clampin met guide Marilyn Leah and Dr Angelique Richardson from Exeter University to do a circular walk, starting at Hardy’s former home on the outskirts of Dorchester.
