‘The road from Sherborne to Shaftesbury passes through sixteen miles of some of the prettiest scenery in Wessex, and crosses the famous Blackmore Vale midway between the two towns. Known formerly as the White Hart Forest, this fertile and secluded valley, through which the little river Cale flows to meet the Stour, with its old-world ways and rich pasture, is a spot, still little known to strangers, though frequented by artists, well worthy of a visit from those who appreciate rural and idyllic life.’
