5/163 House 40m south west
of Woodlands Farm
16.5.85 House


House. Early C16 and c1710, converted to house mid C19. Walls largely red
brick; old tile roof, brick stacks. Two storeys. The north block is early
C16, part of a larger range of a major early C16 house, another part of which
survives in Woodlands Farm (qv). The east and west walls are of thin red
brick laid English bond, with a diaper pattern of blue headers; on the west a
flint rubble plinth with stone water table moulding is visible. This block
wall truncated to the south c1710 by a rectangular building on a different
alignment, with walls of red brick also in English bond. The northern part
was evidently open to the roof, lit by a large window in the east and west
walls probably of mullion and transom type of Woodlands Farm House. The S end
of the building seems to have had an attic built on the part elevation a
blocked window with a segmental head is surmounted by small 2-light window
whose original oak frame survives (with later lights). Original roof of 3
bays, hipped to north; collared rafter trusses with king struts. Panelled
chimney to north with rebuilt cap. External stack to south gable with
battered offsets and plain shaft. Upper part of earlier, northern, section of
building reconstructed when 1710 block built. In mid C19, north gable rebuilt
(? after truncation of building), porch added in north west angle, interior
fully floored and fitted up as house. Scattered fenestration of mostly two
light wooden casements with glazing bars, largely under half brick segmental
heads, introduced throughout. The building of c1710 should be connected with
the house built at Woodlands by 'Mr Seymour of the Hanager Office' the main
body of Woodlands Farm is slightly later but probably belongs to the same
general period (see R.C.H.M. Dorset 5 (1975), p.112, for general history of
