12/81 The Fruit House


Fruit house to Bishop's Manor House, possibly originally a gatehouse.
Medieval, rebuilt 1938, restored in 1986. Ashlar, rubble, brick. Single
storey, single bay. Pointed single-span arch over river. Board door with
ogee-arched panels beneath hollow-moulded basket arch. Plaque to left
18th June 1938
Happy hearts and happy faces
Happy play in grassy places
That was how, in ancient ages
Children grew to kings and sages
R L Stevenson

Plaque to right reads "On 9th Oct 1929 water used for the church fire was
pumped from this moat near by here being the only supply available". String
course. Coped gable contains letters APF (Ashes Playing Field) in relief,
with bellcote above, flanked by round embattled turrets. It is doubtful
whether any of the features above the string course are original.
