Manchester House II

House, now 3 houses and store. C15 with C16 projecting wing and various later
modifications and alterations. Coursed rubble walls with stone slate half-hipped
and gable ended roofs. Main range runs parallel to, but set back from, the High
Street. This range may have replaced an earlier range in the C15 or early C16.
A C16 wing with its gable facing the High Street forms an 'L' with the main
range. This may have been either a parlour with a chamber above or a shop.
To the rear is another wing, now a store, which may have been a medieval kitchen. Victorian wing projecting on right occupied by Manchester House.
2 storey facade partially obscured by C19 building on right [Manchester House]. Variety of C19 and C20
casement and sash windows. Fernwood has wide door under a flat arch. Silk Hay
present a half-hipped gable to the road. This has a C19 shop front with central
door and 2-light sash window above. Internally Silk Hay retains one C15 arch-
braced collar truss with arch-braced purlins. The C16 wing towards the street
has the remains of an arch-braced, moulded roof-truss and has a ceiling of
moulded intersecting beams. There is a massive stone chimney stack at the
intersection between this range and the main range. The rear wing has a soot
blackened truss and may be the kitchen wing of an earlier hall. Fernwood has
a ceiling of intersecting deep chamfered beams. 'RCHM, Dorset Vol III, 1970,
