Higher Abbott's Wootton Farmhouse, Abbott's Wootton Lane, Whitchurch Canonicorum - Dorset (UA)

Former monastic site, now farmhouse. Following sale in 2017, significant unauthorised works were undertaken internally. There has been a partial collapse of the historic ceiling at first floor level and cracks are visible on the east gable. In May 2020 temporary protection had been applied to some windows. Discussions with the owner to reverse the inappropriate works and repair the building have currently stalled and Historic England is exploring all options with Dorset Council to secure the reinstatement of the building.
