The house itself is centrally located in the village of Bowerchalke at the upper end of the picturesque Chalke Valley which is part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although it is only a small village it has some notable attributes in that it has been home to Nobel Prize winning author William Golding, Gaia Theorist Prof James Lovelock and Poet Siegfried Sassoon. William Golding is also buried in the village churchyard. From 1878 to 1924 the village had its own newspaper the cheapest ever printed in England as it sold for a farthing and was published locally by the Rev Edward Collett.
The Doomsday Book refers to this area as the Manor of Chelke and it was not until 1225 that the name Burchelke first appeared. Prior to the Roman occupation of Britain this area was inhabited by a tribe called the Durotriges and legend has it that the Bowerchalke hamlet of Woodminton was the site of a battle between them and a Roman legion circa AD43. The battle was fought at a place called Patty’s Bottom and legend has it, on certain moonlight nights tramping is distinctly heard and headless horses can be seen.
