Dorchester is the county town of Dorset, England. It lies between Poole and Bridport on the banks of the River Frome to the south of the Dorset Downs and north of the South Dorset Ridgeway that separates the area from Weymouth, 7 miles to the south.  It was for many years the home of the author Thomas Hardy, whose novel "The Mayor of Casterbridge" takes place in a fictionalised version of Dorchester.
