now the garden of the farmhouse, the boundary wall being the outside walls of the
former buildings; this is of flint which incorporates squared stonework and a later
brick weathered top, and varies in thickness. The north and eastern wall (C14) of the
western range is now part of the farmhouse, again of flint; it incorporates 2 pointed
stone arches, a small upper stone framed window, and some stonework. The farmhouse is
L-shaped of 2 storeys the northern part being the monastic walling.Above this in the
north gable there is exposed timber-framing. The house west wall (C18 of 3 windows)
has red brickwork in Flemish bond (with blue headers) and cambered openings. The south
