GV II

Formerly known as: Masonic Temple ST THOMAS STREET. Masonic hall. 1816, but front 1834, by CB Fookes (RCHME). Stucco front, painted brick return, slate roof. A Greek Doric distyle-in-antis temple front with fluted Doric half-columns, and square moulded caps to the pilasters. A central 8-panel door with decorative fanlight on a reeded transom has a Gibbsian surround; to each side is a deep round-headed niche. The door is on 5 steps, with enclosing spearhead railings, returned at the ends, and central gate. The return to School Street has 5 plain brick piers to sunk panels and blank lights to brick voussoirs, and stooled stone sills, on a semi-basement with 3 openings to cambered heads and paired plank doors. Brick dentil eaves. The roof is hipped at the outer end; its pitch is greater than that of the front pediment. INTERIOR: the lower floor, approx 1m below pavement level, is in concrete; there is a central row of timber posts, and stone dividing walls. A large late C19 range has been added at the rear of the property. Interior of the upper hall was not inspected. A very correct Greek front, based on the Hephaisteion in Athens, probably from Stewart and Revett's drawings. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 340).
