Listing Text


8/152 Premises of P D and
C J Mount (formerly
4.10.60 listed as Bere Regis
Bus Office)


House, now shop, office and flats, c 1500 and extensively altered and added to
in C17, C18, C19 and C20. Roughcast, brick and rubble, tiled roofs with some
stone slate verges, gabled and half-hipped. There are a number of irregularly
positioned brick stacks. The original building was an open hall with an east
cross wing. The hall was chambered and a chimney inserted in the Cl7 and a
west cross wing added in the C18. Few early features survive externally. At
the south end of the east wing are the remains of a large chimney in squared
greensand. To the north of the same wing is a chimney of probably C18 origin.
The market cross facade is of 2 storeys. The ground floor has double doors under
a segmental arch to the left, a 3-light C19 shop front, another door and a
fixed 3-light window. Above is a 3-light wooden casement with glazing bars.
Internally, both the east wing and the central range have cruck trusses with
wind braced purlins, The central range has a ceiling of deep chamfered inter-
secting beams. The building is listed because of its plan form, remaining
early features and its relationship to other buildings rather than for the
details of its facade. "RCHM, Dorset, Vol III", HMSO, 1970, p 277, no 7.
