ST 7814 STURMINSTER NEWTON MARKET CROSS (EAST SIDE)

8/152 Premises of P D and C J Mount (formerly 4.10.60 listed as Bere Regis Bus Office)

G.V. II

House, now shop, office and flats, c 1500 and extensively altered and added to in C17, C18, C19 and C20. Roughcast, brick and rubble, tiled roofs with some stone slate verges, gabled and half-hipped. There are a number of irregularly positioned brick stacks. The original building was an open hall with an east cross wing. The hall was chambered and a chimney inserted in the Cl7 and a west cross wing added in the C18. Few early features survive externally. At the south end of the east wing are the remains of a large chimney in squared greensand. To the north of the same wing is a chimney of probably C18 origin. The market cross facade is of 2 storeys. The ground floor has double doors under a segmental arch to the left, a 3-light C19 shop front, another door and a fixed 3-light window. Above is a 3-light wooden casement with glazing bars. Internally, both the east wing and the central range have cruck trusses with wind braced purlins, The central range has a ceiling of deep chamfered inter- secting beams. The building is listed because of its plan form, remaining early features and its relationship to other buildings rather than for the details of its facade.
