The Vyne, Sherborne St John

This buildings dates to 1524. The standing structures of The Vyne mansion include elements of what was in the sixteenth century a far larger Tudor complex. As part of the recent major refurbishment works to the house, a detailed programme of archaeological recording was undertaken, including a summary dendro dating survey, examining 18 samples from five areas, giving felling dates from spring 1524 to summer 1526. The latter date, for the Oak Gallery roof, compares well with the carved panelling in the Oak Gallery itself which could not have been any later than 1527 for it portrays Cardinal Wolsey who was disgraced in 1528. (Miles and Worthington 1998, VA 29, list 91)
