Dorchester - New Opening
Dorchester is noted as being home and inspiration to the author Thomas Hardy whose novels Tess of the d'Urbervilles and The Mayor of Casterbridge were both based on the town.
Dorchester's roots stem back to prehistoric times. Settlements were first based around Maiden Castle, a large Iron Age hill fort that was one of the most powerful settlements in pre-Roman Britain, with varying tribes having existed there since 4000 BC.
