More information : (SY 84869468) Manor House (NR) (Site of) (NAT) (1)

(SY 84869468) King John's Palace (NR) and afterwards Manor House (NR) (Site of) (NAT) (2)

A little east of Bere Regis church, on the river bank, stood the ancient seat of the Turbevilles. The building was of stone, the west part being built or repaired by Thomas Turberville, who died in 1587. Under a window at the back of the house was a date 1648, but the building was destroyed "some time since". Local tradition states that King John had a castle at Bere, on the spot where in later times stood the mansion of the Turbervilles. It is probable however, that the tradition states refers to a manor-house appendant to the Royal possessions in the parish. (See SY 89 SW 34 for Royal palace). (3)

The field where this manor house stood is now under grass but
contains two level platforms which may have some association. (4)

No historical evidence was discovered to associate the Royal palace (Authy 2) with the site of the manor house. The two platforms mentioned by Authy 4 are possibly steadings of the
original house and outbuildings. Surveyed at SY 84839471. (5)

"SY 848947. Site of manor house near Court Farm. Scheduled". (6)

In the field centred at SY 84849468 are three level platforms and two rectangular depressions bounded by scarps. The scarps are ploughed down but the platform at SY 84839471 has a scarp on the south up to 2.0m. high. This could be the site of a major building.

Surveyed at 1:2500 on M.S.D. (7)
