When Bathsheba Everdene arrives in the small village of Weatherbury, she captures the heart of three very different men: Gabriel Oak, a quiet shepherd, the proud obdurate Farmer Boldwood and dashing, unscrupulous Sergeant Troy. The battle for her affections will have dramatic, tragic and surprising consequences in this classic tale of love and misunderstanding.

Sergeant Troy’s military costume, worn by Terence Stamp in the 1967 film, is currently on display at the Wiltshire Museum as part of the Hardy’s Wessex: The landscapes that inspired a writer exhibition 28th May to 30th October 2022.
