SZ0497 : Knighton: two Lady Wimborne Cottages

Knighton: two Lady Wimborne Cottages
Knighton: two Lady Wimborne Cottages
The southernmost two houses in the small hamlet of Knighton, this semi-detached pair is one of numerous such cottages built to an identical design, peppered around the wider Wimborne/Poole area.

These are numbered 100 (left) and 101, which do not equate to street numbers, but are the numbers of the Lady Wimborne Cottages. The present-day street numbering gives them 44 and 45 but in the opposite order.
Lady Wimborne Cottages :: SZ0398
These distinctive buildings are to be found dotted around the Merley and surrounding area. Mainly built as semi-detached pairs (perhaps not all, since it is believed that 111 of them were built), they were built by Charlotte Guest, whose husband had bought nearby Canford House in the 1840s, for the Canford estate workers. Her daughter continued to have these built until 1904.
They retain their original numbers which do not equate to street addresses above the doorways.
