since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Love it. One of the subjects the students come back to, over and over again, is The Art and Architecture of British Writers. Always, as your notes suggest, on a long "trail" of homes and other connections. The theory is that you cannot truly understand a writer's output until you have examined his or her life closely. The Thomas Hardy Trail, including this gorgeous cottage, has been a delight.
It does seem to relect his writings and poetry and attitude to life.
