Details

GREENHILL 1. 1625 (North Side) Former Stable Block behind Greenhill Court ST 6516 1/102 28.11.50. II 2. 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"].
