Kingston Hall

Kingston Hall, James Bankes, Esq. - This place is close to Wimborne, and is distinguished on approaching it by cedar trees planted in the waste on the sides of the road, and by an elegant entrance gate and paling to the approach road. The park is varied by single trees of good kinds, and in particular by a number of cedars. The house is an old cubical building, and no attention, we were told, was at that time paid to the gardens.
