Just over six miles south-east of Dorchester and approximately eight miles east of Weymouth lies the rural village of Owermoigne, believed to have been a settlement since Roman times.
Purported to once have been a hotbed for smugglers operating along the Dorset coast, Owermoigne certainly has some stories to tell. The village was home to generations of Thomas Hardy’s ancestors – as recorded in the parish register – and the inspiration for the author’s short story, ‘The Distracted Preacher’, is thought to have come from his family’s (possibly tall) tales of Owermoigne life. Perhaps the most notorious former resident was Charles Stourton, Lord of the Manor during the reign of Mary Tudor. Following a dispute, Stourton dispatched his neighbour, Hartgill, and his son, burying both deep beneath his cellar – but not deep enough. The bodies were discovered and Stourton was hanged.
Today, life in the village is far more community spirited. Among the historic houses and pretty cottages is a thriving village hall and a licensed social club, humorously named ‘Owermoigne Cricket Club’ due to a self-professed tenuous link to a genuine cricket club of yesteryear. On the outskirts of the village on the A352 is a petrol station and farm shop, and to the northern end is Owermoigne’s most famous attraction, Mill House Cider Museum.
