In wall of farm building in garden to east is a limestone carved roof boss, 15th century, depicting the Entombment of Christ. See (S2), which suggests this may have come from Pentney Priory but note other carved medieval stonework in East Winch and area, may even have come from King's Lynn.
Also noted by inspector but not listed, is an ice house of about 1908 in yard to north of house, square, of concrete, entrance to south. No obvious source of ice, nearest source of water is a small stream quarter mile to south.
