EXTRA INFORMATION: The Wootton Wawen Report considered the
north wing to be a survival from a single- or double-ended
hall building of which the present central and south elements
represent a rebuilding. The hood above the entrance may have
been brought from elsewhere in the early C19. Rebuilding c1700
was likely to have been the result of a general programme by
King's College, Cambridge, to which the area had been endowed
by Henry VI in 1414.
Forms part of a good range of farmhouse and associated farm
buildings which include the Barn Range (qv), Cart shed with
Stable and Hayloft (qv) and Stables (qv).
