Within and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Piddle Valley lies a few miles north of the county town of Dorchester and includes the villages of Piddlehinton, Piddletrenthide, Plush and Alton Pancras. Piddlehinton and Piddletrenthide, along with the valley itself, owe their unusual names to the River Piddle, which meanders through them.
Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086, Piddletrenthide is central to life in the valley, offering two well-regarded public houses, the only shop and All Saints parish church, considered one of the finest village churches in Dorset. Boasting both Norman and 15th Century features, the church is particularly well-known for its numerous gargoyles and two headstones in the graveyard marking the graves of members of the Durbefield family, thought to be Thomas Hardy’s inspiration for the name of his famous protagonist, Tess of the D’Urbervilles.
Further south, Piddlehinton is home to another well-liked public house and is particularly proud of its Millennium Green, an outdoor space for exploration, relaxation and play; the heart of the village community. Towards the northern end of the valley, Alton Pancras is a small village, the first permanent inhabitants of which are thought to have been Saxons. Surrounding the village is evidence of prehistoric human activity, including two round barrows and strip lynchets believed to be Celtic. Completing the valley villages is the hamlet of Plush, a collection of mostly thatched cottages surrounding yet another highly regarded public house and Plush Manor, a grand Regency manor surrounded by nine acres of both wild and landscaped gardens. All four villages enjoy a real sense of community, hosting social groups, events and festivals throughout the year.
