Now Municipal Offices. Present building dates to 1690-1700, being a partial re-
building of the earlier house, which was the house of James II before his accession.
At the Restoration it was given to the Earl of Clarendon, father of James's first wife
who was the mother of Queen Anne, who was born here, and Queen Mary.
The house is of red brick with steep hipped and flat slated roof with modillion eaves
which extends into the 2-storey wings at either end.
Ground floor has rusticated cement facing, with central door with enriched surround
with cornice on carved brackets and open scrolled pediment with cartouche and crown
in tympanum.
Garden front has central pedimented doorcase and is rusticated as on the front elevation
with later single-storey wings. (R.C.H.M.)
There are modern extensions and later alterations.
