|Type of record:||Building|
|Name:||The Priory, 4 London Road|
This rather grand carstone and brick house was built in the second half of the 16th century. It was not a priory. The original garden front was replaced by a sash window range and a wing was added to the east around 1700. There are 19th to 20th century outbuildings. To the southeast an annexe, possibly a carriage house, built around 1700 has a tunnel vaulted undercroft dating between the 14th and 17th century.
