Manor House, Berwick Bassett
Manor House, Berwick Bassett
Grade II Listed early 17th century manor house LinkExternal link in coursed sarsen with a tiled roof. The five bays fronting the street have stone-mullioned windows, several of which are now blocked in, and the entrances do not face the road, giving it a grim, almost prison-like aspect. The front garden is edged with undressed sarsen boulders; the sarsen theme continues beyond these with a sarsen pavement. This huge number of sarsens was probably cleared from the slopes of Berwick Bassett Down, a short distance to the east; a few sarsens still survive on the slopes of Monkton Down, just south of that.
