Statement of Interest

Related to Chapel of St James (SCHEDULED MONUMENT). The front garden forms part of former burial ground. This house first consisted of a single storey dwelling (built circa 1705) and in the later part of the 18th century would have been extended to include a second floor consisting of a separate dwelling.
