This is the most outstanding building in the parish in many ways. In its current form it appears to have started its life in the early 1600s, but, significantly, it is quite possible that the surviving fabric of the 17th century building is hiding a much earlier building. Evidence of an earlier building can be glimpsed here and there in the fabric, including a probable smoke room in the loft space. This earlier building would certainly be of medieval date, and at the moment this is the best contender for the earliest surviving domestic building in the parish. Clearly it was a house of some importance.
