To continue ...

To continue the list of links to free to enter writing competitions I started in my last post - seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve. (There will be more on Friday)

And here's another word/geograhpical quiz (or maybe it's a discussion point) Is this house located in Wessex?

    1. Hardy used the name for a fictional county, Kitty but it's the real name of a historical area.

  2. That's Hardy's house in Dorchester, isn't it?

  3. No idea about the puzzle, but I love the house! Looks like the perfect place where a pair of kids would be sent to stay the summer w/an eccentric aunt. =)

  6. That's Max Gate, the house that Thomas Hardy designed and built. It's situated just outside Dorchester in Dorset. The National Trust now open it regularly and you can visit the attic rooms where Emma (Hardy's first wife) withdrew from the world. The contents of Hardy's study can be seen at the Dorchester County Museum.

    1. The attic wasn't open when we went, Gail. I'll have to go back again.
