    5 Quirky Facts About Evershot

    1. Three Sisters
      Three standing stones, possibly Bronze Age monoliths, are thought to have been moved into the village from another location and now stand as a bench. Local legend surrounds the stones with the tale of ‘Three Dumb Sisters’ who were turned to stone after dancing on the Sabbath.
    2. Evershot Ben
      The six bells found in the church of St Osmund are inscribed with the words, ‘I to the church the living call, and to the grave do summon all’ and were designed by E.B. Dennison, the designer of Big Ben that hangs high above the Palace of Westminster.
    3. Literary Fame
      The Acorn pub was captured in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Hardy was a local man having been raised in Dorset and he featured many local towns and villages in his work. In his novel The Acorn is renamed ‘The Sow and Acorn’ and Evershot is called ‘Evershead’. Hardy started his working life as an architect and designed part of what is now the Summer Lodge Country House Hotel and his mother Jemima Hand was born in the neighbouring village.
    4. Little Commonwealth
      In 1914, Geroge Montagu, the Earl of Sandwich built an experimental children’s home named Little Commonwealth. The site used was a farm owned by the Montagu family. The revolutionary principle involved self-rule and helping those that needed a new direction. Of the 25 boys and 20 girls that attended at any one time, some were ‘delinquents’ appointed to the school by the courts. The school was self-governing, the residents all sitting in on their own ‘court’ that set punishments, settled disputes and made important decisions. All the pupils were taught trades and paid the full adult rate for their work which included plumbing, labouring, building, farming, domestic skills and even running Little Commonwealth’s shop. They had their own currency and traded with outside suppliers and trades.
    5. River Frome
      Evershot is the source of the River Frome, not quite the source of the Nile, but nevertheless an interesting claim and delightful site certainly worth a visit for nature lovers.
