passage, fine late C16 panelling with fluted pilasters and
volute capitals with the Ten Commandments inscribed above,
unusual piscina in north wall, perhaps indicating, in
conjunction with the panelling, that the room was used as a
chapel. Moulded compartment ceiling with C16 plasterwork and
bosses bearing coats of arms. Two C16 chimneypieces, one with
a lintel of grotesque figures. Two original chimneypieces on

also remains of C17 wall painting of 3-masted schooner against

roof trusses of double butt-purlin construction said to
survive. The precise evolution of the house between the late
C15 and early C17 is still not clear.
In the mid C19 the farm included the whole ecclesiastical
parish of Hangleton; it ceased to be a farm after the Second
World War and the last remaining farm buildings were
demolished to make way for housing in the 1950s.
