Summary

A small house dating to the early 19th century. The rear wall incorporates an earlier 17th or early 18th century building. There is some reused stone in the main building, probably taken from the nearby church. What is remarkable is the contrast between the rather crude exterior brickwork and the very high quality plasterwork on the interior. Each end of the house has a later 19th century single storey extension.
