A county of chalk downs (sheep, yew-tree woods, marbled white butterflies and a carved giant) and chalk cliffs (over which, in Far From the Madding Crowd, Gabriel Oak's sheep cascaded and below which Sergeant Troy left his clothes at Durdle Door) and chalk streams with mottled trout and dark-thatched cottages with exuberant flower gardens. It is wide bowls and vales of green tree-speckled farmland looking magnificent from wooded hilltops, some with ancient forts; and great country houses in their own valleys, reminding one of Downton; and lots of double-barrelled village names often beginning with Winterbourne or ending with Abbas.
