Grid Ref : TQ4727000940
Summary : A 16th century house with cellars which are earlier in date and may be part of the Bishop's House.

"There are no surface remains, but I have found traces of the
footings whilst gardening and part of the cellars still exist.
These were restored during the late war and used as air raid
shelters" (a).

The original cellars are constructed of hewn blocks of local stone
and appear to be in good condition. There is a heap of flint
and rubble in the garden which now marks the site of the building
from which it is derived.

No literacy evidence was encountered during recording. (3)

Part of the cellar could date from the former Bishop's house which
pre-dated the 16thc house of the Pelham family. The surrounding
ground has been landscaped. (4)

The entrance to the cellars re-used as air raid shelters is at
TQ 47270094. There is much building debris in the garden nearby,
and footings are found in the digging of graves at TQ 4727 0095.
No information regarding the date of construction or destruction.
Entrance to cellars resurveyed at 1:2500. (5)
