SY6873 CLEMENT'S LANE, Chesil 969-1/3/22 (South East side) Conjuror's Lodge


Workshop and store. Late C18 or early C19. Squared and dressed stone front, rubble returns, corrugated asbestos-cement roof. A long narrow building in two storeys set gable to street, with loading-bay door centrally to first floor above larger pair of C20 doors in plat band surround, offset to right at ground floor. Raised verge, dressed flush alternating quoins. To right a straight-flight stone external flight of steps with stone balustrade rises to door at first floor. Towards back a glazing bar sash at each level. This property is reputed to have been used during the C19 by a breakaway Dissenting sect, whence its strange name. A rare surviving example of this building type on Portland, which, like Ranter's Lodge (q.v.), has historical interest in tracing the development of non-conformity which was an important facter in the island's social history.
