1/1 Abbey Farmhouse
Moated farmhouse, on the site of the conventual buildings of the Benedictine Priory associated with the church, dissolved in 1528, of which no trace remains within the present house. Mid C16.

Basic 3-cell internal chimney and cross-entry form, with a later lobby entrance; 6 bays. 2 storeys and attics 3 windows to the upper storey and 5 to the ground storey, all of cross form, some early C20 replacements. Mid C19 enclosed and gabled porch with double doors.
Interior with good, plain timbering exposed. The rooms to each side of the stack have main beams with chamfer and ogee stops with bar and similar joists, set flat. On the rear wall of the room to the south of the stack, housings for a 5-light diamond-mullioned window replaced by a 3-light window with ovolo-moulded mullions and intermediate wooden bars. Both ground floor fireplaces have timber lintels. The service area is still divided into 2, with the floor on a higher level and a half-cellar below, apparently an
original feature. Main posts with long arched braces removed. Side-purlin roof, much altered, which at one time had dormers. Various lean-to's and extensions at the rear, modernised.
