What a stylish portal!
Chris: This is the 16th century Pitchmarket in Cerne Abbas Ray. The building was originally where farmers displayed their corn sacks on market day. It is now a Grade I listed building and a private residence.



The house has been used in a number of films including Tess of the d'Urbevilles, Mansfield Park and Tom Jones.
