    to the life of this extraordinary and enigmatic man It was in this small austere house that Lawrence the illegitimate son of Sir Thomas Chapman born in Tremadoc in Wales on 16 August 1888 lived on and off for the last 12 years of his life Lawrence rented the nearly derelict brick and tile labourer s cottage in 1923 under the name of Aircraftman Shaw He d been welcomed home with much acclaim after the war and later he joined the Tank Corps at nearby Bovington Camp He used the pseudonym to avoid publicity Cloud s Hill contains most of Larence s original furniture and possessions Nothing in Clouds Hill is to be a care upon the World he wrote While I have it there shall be nothing exquisite or unique in it Nothing to anchor me Over the door he carved a Greek inscription that translates as I don t care Here Lawrence revised the account of his wartime experiences Seven Pillars of Wisdom The famous Thomas Hardy and E M Forster visited and mixed easily with ordinary soldiers listening to music and eating Lawrence s picnics The cottage was a place where Lawrence worked and entertained but he rarely stayed overnight As a serving soldier he was obliged to sleep at Bovington Camp Lawrence transferred back into the RAF in 1925 but kept Clouds Hill and eventually bought it To pay for the renovations he sold a treasured gold dagger from Mecca He retired here in 1935 and was killed in a motorcycle accident near the cottage a few months later Hidden amongst woodlands the cottage consists of four rooms with a stairway rising through the middle The low ceilings wouldn t have bothered Lawrence as he was only 5 feet 4 inches tall Given his complex personality it s not surprising that his home is heavily idiosyncratic His bedroom is decorated with aluminium foil which he thought would be good insulation The Book Room is dominated by what appears to be a large leather covered double bed surrounded by book shelves It turns out it s a couch where guests sat and where Lawrence sprawled to read His typewriter and an acoustic gramophone complete with 78 rpm records are displayed in the Music Room The bathroom has a bath but no toilet Running hot water was only added shortly before he died In the garage is an exhibition with photos of his life T E Lawrence s funeral took place at St Nicholas Church in Moreton and was attended by Churchill the King of Iraq and Vidal Sassoon He is buried across the road from the church The church has exquisite beautiful windows of clear glass sandblasted etched and engraved with a variety of images by Whistler well worth a visit At the Saxon St Martin s Church in Wareham you ll find a life size crusader style effigy of Lawrence in full Arab dress Artist Eric Kennington carved it out of Purbeck marble and Portland stone

    He was determined to give his wife and children a dose of cowpox and so he took them to a nearby farm at Chetnole where there was an outbreak of the infection In an open field he took some pus from an infected cow and using the point of a stocking needle scratched his wife s arm and injected the pus thus performing the world s first recorded vaccination The term vaccination comes from the Latin word for cow vacca He then repeated the procedure on his two sons All of them suffered for a few days with the cowpox and then called James Phipps in 1796 In 1797 the Jestys moved to Worth Matravers where Benjamin performed many more vaccinations on the local people On his gravestone are the words the first person known that introduced the Cow Pox by inoculation On the 11 June 1685 the Duke of Monmouth the pretender to the throne landed on the beach at Lyme Regis 11 4 miles 25 minutes DT7 3JF www lymeregis com with about 80 men including England s first novelist Daniel Defoe They marched north picking up support as they went and met with the forces of James II led by John Churchill later Duke of Marlborough at Sedgemoor in Somerset on 6 July Monmouth s army was soundly defeated and he fled across country with Lord Grey and three companions They headed to Dorset making for Poole where they hoped to catch a boat to Holland At Woodyates just inside Dorset to the north was an inn owned by the Earl of Shaftesbury and tenanted by Robert Browning ancestor of the poet Here the group left their horses and split up Monmouth disguised as a shepherd He made his way into open country near Horton and was seen climbing over a hedge by an old woman Amy Farrant living in a nearby cottage A search was organised at sunrise and a militiaman named Parkin spotted what looked like a pile of clothes in a ditch beneath an ash tree He dragged out the Duke of Monmouth by then haggard and scruffy with nothing in his pockets except raw peas and a badge of the Order of the Garter given to him by his father Charles II The spot has been known ever since as Monmouth s Ash Monmouth was beheaded on Tower Hill on 15 July In the aftermath at the Bloody Assizes of Judge Jeffreys over 300 of Monmouth s supporters were executed The defeat at Sedgemoor was not entirely unproductive for Daniel Defoe While hiding in a churchyard during his escape he saw the name Robinson Crusoe on a gravestone and filled it away for later use After the Restoration Charles II returned many times to Dorset to thank those who had helped him during his escape after the battle of Worcester in 1651 On one of these trips he stopped in Godmanstone 24 5 miles 40 minutes and asked at the blacksmith s forge
