Meet in the Springhead at Sutton Poyntz.   After a welcoming coffee, Katherine Barker, co-founder of the Dorset County Boundary Group, will talk about the Boundary Project and its rationale, and also about her article, 'Boundless Wessex', which was published in the Thomas Hardy Journal in October 2003.

Dr. Tony Fincham will give a talk on Tess and Trantridge.  Helen Lange will read 'A Trampwoman's Tragedy' with illustrations of some of the 'lone inns' on the Trampwoman's journey provided by Tony Fincham.  Afer a short break, Andrew Morgan, of the Boundary Group, will give a presentation, guiding us along the boundary adjacent to Hardy's Trantridge.  Finally there will be informal discussion and possibly further readings from Hardy's work.
