Remains of
Manor House

Remains of manor house. C17. Dressed stone walls with ashlar quoins
at east end. Coursed and random rubblestone walls at west end. Walls
stand to 4.5 metres at east end and one metre at west end. Original
south (entrance) wall of manor, limited return walls. No roofs. The
south front has one window of 3 lights and one blocked window with a
label. Remains of window cills over doorway. Doorways have ovolo
moulded or hollow chamfered jambs; two, one reset in a garden wall have
four centred heads. On plan the house comprised three rooms and
a through passage. A change in floor levels suggests that the east part
may be a reconstruction, R.C.H.M. Dorset II, p. 180 (4)).
