taken 10 years ago, near to Netherbury, Dorset, Great Britain

Parnham House
Parnham House
Parnham was built circa 1400 and since then much restoration has taken place right up into the 20th Century. Stephen de Parnham was the first recorded owner and then the Strode and Oglander families lived there. Please see ST4701 : The Strode memorial - St Mary's Beaminster.
More recently in the 1920's the house became a country club and an army hospital during WWII. In 1976 John Makepeace the well-known cabinet maker and craftsman established his school there. It is now in private ownership.
