The former Ropewalk, 75 metres north east of Millbrook House, High Street, West Coker - South Somerset

Former twine works, now store and workshop. Late C19 with C20 alterations and extensions. Historic England grant-aided urgent repairs have been undertaken and supporting scaffolding has been erected. In 2011 the lease was taken over by the Coker Rope and Sail Trust which has undertaken structural repairs. In September 2016 the Heritage Lottery Fund approved a grant which will fund completion of Dawe's restoration, and works are underway.
