In response to mapmaker's comment that Wessex isn't a fictional place, and with JMK's invaluable help, I've put in the alternative reality created by Thomas Hardy.  Most can be guessed with a little extrapolation.  Have fun!

Interesting to see the name choices, some were fairly obvious, others more obscure. I particularly liked the ones for Bournemouth and Oxford.

Thank you. I love Hardy and having had to study Tess at school, I still  have a collection of well-thumbed Hardy paperbacks which I bought at the time and still re-read. (Aaaagh more than 40 years ago) However it hasn't helped greatly with the rememberance of place names....

Might get Jude the Obscure out, I always like a good weep.
