There are only 2 thatched village halls in Dorset and one of them can be found in Briantspuddle.
Internally, although it has many modern facilities, a glance at the roof and the structure of the Main Hall will reveal its former use as a barn where the grain from surrounding farms was stored.
In the 17th century the tithe barn belonging to Bryantspuddle Farm occupied the site before it was rebuilt in 1803 with cob walls and a thatched roof following a fire. In the 1920’s the barn was converted into a village hall by Sir Ernest Debenham, who also built the nearby workers houses and dairy farm buildings.
Also of interest are the Eric Gill designed War Memorial and Arts & Craft cottages by Gill’s brother Macdonald.
During the afternoon there will be a small exhibition on the architecture and history of the Debenham Estate in the Village Hall where teas will also be available.
Sunday 22nd, 1pm to 5pm
