It is here that the Romans came in 43AD. They called it “Durnovaria”, built an aqueduct and marched out again in 410AD. Thomas Hardy, the Wessex writer lived here and his statue can be seen, sitting and viewing the turmoils of modern man. William Barnes, the dialect poet wrote the words to “Linden Lea” and this has been sung to Vaughan Williams music ever since. His statue stands in the main street, right by the museum that holds the fossils of the nearby coast and the jaws of a dinosaur, called “Kevan”!
