Moreton+Briantspuddle.



1. Briantspuddle is a small village in the Piddle Valley in Dorset, England, near the villages of Affpuddle and Tolpuddle and about 8 miles (13 km) east of the county town of Dorchester.
The consistency of the design of new houses and agricultural buildings is due to the use of Arts and Crafts.

Following his death in 1935 he was buried in Moreton churchyard where his grave attracts tourists from around the world.
