Description

Nestling deep in the south Dorsetshire countryside on the edge of a wood at the end of a long rambling lane lies Dunshay manor. The house holds many secrets on account of the fact that, over the centuries, here lived a succession of truly remarkable people: Alice Briwere, wife of a 12th-century knight, donated marble from her quarries for the building of Salisbury Cathedral; Benjamin Jesty the first person ever to vaccinate against smallpox; artists Lucy Kemp-Welch, George Spencer Watson and his daughter Mary Spencer Watson and inventor Leslie Everett Baynes who pioneered the design of swing-wing aircraft.
