The Public Weighbridge House dates from the 1700s and is a Grade II listed property located within the Sherborne Conservation Area. It stands to the south and in front of Sherborne Abbey adjacent to Half Moon Street. Here, despite the small size of the building, it provides an important visual element to this part of the Conservation Area where it forms an intrinsic part of the public open space to the front of the Abbey and the streetscene along Half Moon Street. The weighing mechanism dating from before 1850 remains within the structure, but the weighbridge itself was removed for road widening in 1950.
