Louise Hodgson, author of 'Secret Places of West Dorset' will be signing books in Waterstones Bookshop, 45-46 South Street, Dorchester, DT1 1DQ on Saturday 14th April from 11.00 am onwards.
This book reveals some of the most scenic parts of Dorset. Even if you don't go out to enjoy the suggested walks, you can cosy up in your armchair and explore in your mind Dorset’s folklore, curiosities, legends and history. Louise’s intimate, poetic style of writing provides you with a deeper understanding of the landscape of West Dorset. Describing tucked away churches, ancient trackways and enigmatic stones, she takes you on a personal tour, revealing the magic and importance of places to help give you a greater understanding of our relationship with the landscape.

From ‘lost’ hamlets, ancient sites and hidden nature reserves, to fairy hills, miz-mazes and hollow ways, this book reveals some extraordinarily special and unspoilt places, areas that truly hold the magic of West Dorset. The many photographs and author's own paintings help to illustrate the rare beauty of this part of the county.
