Site of The Bulls Head Inn where the Great Fire of Wareham commenced July 25th 1762

"On Sunday July 25th 1762 a fire broke out in the back of the Bull's Head, South Street, in the centre of the town, turf ashes had been thrown on a dungheap. Thanks to a recent drought and a favourable wind two thirds of the town was destroyed (over 140 buildings). After that time no thatches were allowed in the town. Where you see thatched houses today marks the boundary of the fire. The Georgian architecture of Wareham is a direct result of rebuilding after the fire." -
