Diggory Venn

... is a curious character, used by Hardy as both a physical and metaphorical method of motioning the plot towards its tragic end.

Physically, Diggory Venn is a person who is basically covered from tip to toe in the red stuff that makes his trade. He is not rated highly among the upper class members of the Heath due to his messy work, though he is actually the son of a rich cattle farmer, and beneath all the gunk, Venn proves to be a rather handsome chap.

Gillingham,
the Leddenton of Thomas Hardy's novels, is situated in the Blackmore Vale, and is the most northerly town in Dorset.
Also from the piece I posted regarding Diggory Venn is a reddleman; he travels the country marking flocks of sheep with a red mineral called 'reddle', a dialect term for red ochre

Your question asked for the most northerly village.
Searching through maps it appears to be Bourton, but I have found nothing to prove it.
