Little Court, Charminster, Dorset, of
which we give two views and a plan, is a country
house built from the designs of Mr. P. Morley
Horder, F.R.I.B. A., of London. It is constructed
of brick and rough cast, with a random stone
course and mullions to some portions, the roof
being covered with dark brown tiles. Particular
