Hardy’s Birthplace

Sunday 2nd October 2022

Start 10.00am


For more general info go to Hardy’s Birthplace Visitor Centre. where more detailed directions and information on the facilities and surrounding area can be found.


The actual foray route can be fairly uneven and with some slopes and of course the obligatory mud!

Meet at Thorncombe Woods (Hardy’s Birthplace) car park, Higher Bockhampton, Stinsford.

Car parking spaces are limited and it fills up very quickly with general walkers etc, especially if it is a nice day. We strongly advise you to arrive in good time to get parked. Please note also that there is a charge of £1 an hour and the machine ONLY takes coins, so please make sure you bring some cash!
