The site of the medieval Lambley priory, a Benedictine nunnery, is thought to
lie in the field south of the farm; sundry architectural fragments lie in the
house garden or have been re-used in the house and farm buildings. The present
house has walls over a metre thick which may be medieval.
The two sections of outbuilding to the east represent later dwellings
of bastle-house type, the second largely rebuilt.
