No longer used as such. C16 with C17 and C18 as well as modern modifications.
Timber framed, plastered. Overhanging 1st floor on west side. Some original
windows and leaded lights, transom and mullion. Renewed tiles. 2 storey
and attic, 3 dormers and gable end windows. Mid C19 Tudor type gabled porch

very ingenious actor of plays particularly distinguishing himself when Queen
Elizabeth was there (at Oxford) in 1566". Richard Whately, later Archbishop
of Dublin, was Rector in 1822.
