The Bere Regis bypass near Puddletown is a concrete road and very noisy, you can here this road for miles. This photo was taken on a Sunday and the road was very busy with traffic rushing to and from the quiet of west Dorset. Ironic that it passes very close to the village where Thomas Hardy set far from the madding crowd. I expect the people of Puddletown are glad that the road no longer goes through the village.
How people rush around though, even on a Sunday
