The house itself was built by Robert Packham in the late C18. Two storeys
and attics stuccoed. Hipped tiled roof. Castellated parapet with a pediment
in the centre concealing 2 dormers. Seven sashes with glazing bars missing.
Modern ground floor portion built out along most of the front. At the east
end of the south front is a C19 addition forming an L-wing, Thomas Cranmer,
Archbishop of Canterbury from 1533-1554, built a Palace here in 1552, which
was enlarged by Archbishop Matthew Parker later in the C16. This was demolished
during the Civil War and only the Gatehouse remains which is now a Cottage
adjoining on the south-east of the house known as The Old Palace.
