gabled roof of scalloped tiles, late C19. 2 storeys. SW elevation,
facing church, has one C20 casement window and 4 C19 casement windows at each
floor. C19 canopy to door of No. 3, C19 porch to door of No. 2, similar to
porch already described at No. 1 but with C20 alterations. 3 moulded red

No. 1 has a small piece of oak panelling and a similar door, circa 1600,
introduced from another house, probably from Fitzjohns, demolished circa 1900.
The door has contemporary paintings on both sides of strapwork design,
discovered by Miss Leonora Page under plain paint, and 2 hook and ride iron
hinges crudely fitted. Possibly built as a vicarage (Eland, p. 145).
