Summary

Standing southwest of the church, an 18th century (and possibly earlier) red brick house with sash windows and a pantiled roof. The house is probably the result of two building phases. The front has five window bays divided into a two bay mid 18th century part (with a 19th century bay) to the left, and a later right part. The garden has a long late 18th century red brick serpentine wall along its roadside boundary.
