Beautiful place. Interesting to see Thomas Harry's tomb stone along with other members of his family. Graveyard and it's surroundings very well kept and cared for.

A lovely peaceful atmosphere, if you enjoy churches and graveyards which we do. Be sure to seek out Hardy's burial place.

Stinsford is a pretty little village just next to Kingston Maurward. The church is very pretty and not overly restored. Thomas Hardy's heart is buried within the cemetery. Worth a visit

There is also a separate burial ground mostly for the Hanbury family (of Kingston Maurward House, but also linked to La Mortola on the French/Italian border near Menton). A lovely walk along the River Frome is close by.…
