guide books seem to have forgotten the village of Winterborne Muston,
but it can be found on the Ordnance Survey map, where it is shown as a
farm and a handful of buildings between Winterborne Kingston and
Anderson. However, connoisseurs of architecture would be well rewarded
by venturing down the cul-de-sac to inspect the 17th century thatched
cottage, extended on each side during the 18th century, when it also had
a polygonal porch added.
Exchequer records of the year 1195 in Richard I's reign show that this
place was held by a member of the de Mustiers who came from Moutiers in
France. Muston was known as Winterborn Musters 700 years ago.
