4 October 1995. Brief revisit
Buildings converted to housing not many years after 1976 visit. Only three hoodmoulds now noted in south gable wall, arranged in stepped fashion, but a fourth might have been missed. However in gable apex (above a modern window) is a blank cusped lancet. Directly west of this building, now called Old Barn, is a building called West Barn the walls of which contain much reused stonework amongst post-medieval brickwork. A garden wall about 2.5m high runs north to south to the south of Old Barn built of reused stone and flint with a west face of bricks in English bond with diagonal skintlings. It returns to the west, cut for the present access, then has a south face of Flemish bond brick with horizontal skintlings, but the structure is the same with many ecclesiastical mouldings of stone that could be Caen. Appears to be a garden wall for the 17th century house, partly refaced after 1780.
