Temple Cottage


House, C15, extensively altered C17 with further C19 and C20 alterations. Coursed, squared rubble (local limestome) with gable-ended, thatched roof and brick end stack right. 2 storeys, 3 irregular window range. South facade: ground floor right has a 3-light C17 square-headed, hollow chamfered, stone mullioned window with moulded straight label; the surround has 2 C19 or C20 inset carved heads; upper floor right has a C17 2-light, hollow chamfered, stone mullioned window with some leaded-lights; the central window was similar but has had the mullion removed and a 2-light casement inserted; the upper floor left window is C17 and of a single leaded-light with a stone surround; C20, thatched, stone, part-glazed porch to centre left. North wall: blocked C15 2-centred, chamfered head doorway with continuous jambs; right is a small C15 rectangular window with a chamfered surround; traces of other openings, now blocked. The east wall has an upper-floor, C17, square-headed stone window with the central mullion removed and a 2-light casement inserted. Other fenestration is C20. The west wall appears to have been rebuilt. To the west is a single-storey stone extension with a tiled, gable-ended roof and C20 fenestration. Internally the house is much altered but appears to have originated as a hall, open to the roof. There is a single central, true cruck- truss with an integral, chamfered arch brace to a lost collar. The purlins are morticed to take former wind-braces. There are a number of C17 stop-chamfered ceiling beams. RCHM, Dorset, vol IV, p 115, no 5.
