About Evershot

Evershot is a pretty village and is considered to be the heart of Thomas Hardy's Wessex, famous for its inclusion in much of his famous literature such as the novel 'Tess of the d’Urbervilles' where it is referred to as 'Evershed'.

The village, which is the second highest village in the county of Dorset, has changed little since Hardy's time, and if you are familiar with his works and wish to visit some of the places associated with Hardy and his works, then Evershot is the ideal place to visit.
