Notes about this historic site

1 The inner gatehouse seems to have been converted into the Prior’s House. It is now a farmhouse of 2 storeys, the gateway arches blocked, with a C15 timber-framed addition and some C18 brickwork. The C15 panelled ceiling originally in the upper chamber has been moved to a lower room and repainted. Other panelling, with the staircase, is C17.
2 Holliday’s plan shows additional information for the gatehouse and surrounding buildings.
