I had made myself so tired last week that Monday was a 'stay at home' day. Today I went first in the direction of Sherborne and for the afternoon decided to explore to the south of Dorchester and see if there were any of my Hansford family in any out of the way spots.
I saw a signpost to Stinsford and knew the village rang no bells as a place to which I had travelled. After one or two wrong turnings I found the church and discovered it was one for which Thomas Hardy's father had worked. The village itself features as Mellstock in 'Under The Greenwood Tree'.
