Ruins of large C16 house, referred to in 1585 as a mansion house belonging to the Vicar of Magor. A possible former house on the site referred to in 1388 may have been linked with an Italian Abbey at Anagni to which church and tithes were granted in 1238, these subsequently leased by and eventually granted to the Cistercian community at Tintern; this may explain the traditional name of the Procurator's House.
