I

Founded in 1217, rebuilt in 1373 but since altered and enlarged. The original portion is L-shaped with 2 gables to the east. Flint with stone quoins and stone base. One C14 window in the south gable with 2 cinquefoil-headed lights and quatrefoil above. Other windows modern. To the south of this gable is a wing of 2 storeys and 6 windows in which C18 sash windows (with glazing bars intact) have been inserted, but it has a 4 centred arched Mediaeval doorway. The 2 southernmost window bays of this wing are of red brick with gables above. The rest is of flints with stone window dressings. The flint portion appears wholly C18 on the outside except for the pointed doorway. The brick portion is timber-framed with brick infilling and overhanging 1st floor at the back.
