Full Description

Site of Hall, E of church. 'it can be said from the archaeological evidence that the site was occupied from C13; that the earliest building on the excavation had a timber frame resting on dwarf walls; and that from C16 onwards various brick additions and alterations were made to the existing structure. These included cellars, a probable tall brick porch, drains and a projecting wing. The house was comprehensively demolished and robbed of building material in early C18 by the lst Lord Bristol to make way for a new house, designed by Vanburgh, but which was never built' (precis) (S1). The earliest occupation evidence consisted of two short lengths of ditch containing large quantities of C13 pottery (S5).
