National Trust buys Thomas Hardy Dorset heathland

 

More than 200 acres (80 hectares) of heathland, thought to have inspired some of the settings for writer Thomas Hardy’s novels, has been bought by the National Trust.

The organisation said Slepe Heath in Dorset was the real-life version of the fictional Egdon Heath, where Hardy’s novel The Return of the Native is set.
