Not sure if Hardy's house Max Gate was built on top of a neolithic monument, but there was a megalithic stone unearthed, which gave rise to the poem "The Shadow of the Stone".

Max Gate and garden is built on what is left of the Flagstones enclosure , a twin of the early phase 1 Stonehenge . The rest of it was removed for the Dorchester bypass . The monument had a burial at it's centre sealed by a large sarsen and when Max Gate was being built a sarsen was found covering charred bones ,both stones were used as garden features .
