Listing Text

(North Side)
Former Stable Block
behind Greenhill Court
ST 6516 1/102 28.11.50.
Plain rectangular stone building incorporating in its south east side four
2-light C15 stone windows with cusped heads to lights. These are probably
from the New Inn built by Abbot Ramsam about 1483 for the purpose of its
sharing some of the burden of responsibility of the Abbey Guest Hall [see
map reference 1/4]. The New Inn was demolished about 1842 when the present
terrace of houses known as Greenhill Court was built on the same site.
It is unlikely that the windows in this outbuilding came from the demolished
St Thomas-a-Becket Chapel (which once stood nearly at the top end of Upper
Street); by about 1750 only some ruins of this Chapel were still standing
and the outbuilding is not apparently of sufficiently early structure to
tie in with this evidence [see J Fowler, "Medieval Sherborne"].
