January 2003.
Flint and brick farmhouse on lobby entrance plan. This stage, with grand fireplaces, probably belongs to about 1700. There are two phases of work visible but they are hard to date and probably belong earlier in the 17th century. Building raised in height in 18th century, divided into cottages in 19th century. Gutted in 1960s and renovated in 2003.
Barn of brick and flint, also about 1700, but very much altered.
