The pub on the left is the Red Lion, a grade II listed building (LinkExternal link ) from the 18th century.

Dominating the crossroads is the Victorian town hall with its clock tower, built in the 19th century on the site of the medieval church of St Peter. It houses the town council chamber and Museum, but is not a listed building, unusally for the centre of town.

The white building on the crossroads is 1 Sotuth Street, which is grade II listed (LinkExternal link ).

On the extreme right is another grade II listed building, 1-5 West Street, also 18th Century Georgian.
Wareham is a small market town in Dorset. It is strategically located between the River Frome and River Piddle. The town has a long history with evidence of Pre-Roman settlement. The old town is surrounded by 9th century town walls.
