West Stafford is a small, thatched village in the Frome valley just to the east of Dorchester. The village has good connections with Hardy’s work, the church of St. Andrews being the apparent setting for Tess and Angel Clare’s marriage in Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Lower Lewell Farm, located outside the village is the most probable site for ‘Talbothay’s Dairy’. The village is also the setting of the story The Waiting Supper. There is a good pub in West Stafford, called the Wise Man and although suffering a devastating fire in 2006, has now been rebuilt as a gastropub.
