Notes about this historic site

1 The inner gatehouse was probably converted into the Prior’s House before the suppression and afterwards into the existing farmhouse, a two-storey building, 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.
2 Holliday’s plan shows additional information for the gatehouse and surrounding buildings.
4 Scheduled as Warwickshire Monument No 8.
