This description and pictures of the White Horse Inn, Maiden Newton, Dorset, England were originally published in The Old Inns of Old England and a Picturesque Account of the Ancient and Storied Hostelries of our own Country, Volume II by Charles George Harper, Published in 1906 by Chapman and Hall,Limited.

“Among the various inns mentioned in Thomas Hardy’s novels, the “White Horse” at Maiden Newton was exceptionally picturesque. “Was,” and is not, for already, in the little while between the writing of Tess of the D’ Urbervilles and now, that fine old stone hostelry of the seventeenth century has been pulled down, to make way for a smart new red-brick house, all show and glitter. The old house was the original of the inn at ” Chalk-Newton,” where Tess breakfasted, on the way to Flintcomb Ash.”
