addition, probably of c.1600, with a mid C20 flat-roofed forward extension of
the main range adjoining to the right. Internal and gable stacks with C19

Warner of Boyton in 1736 gave various estates in trust for charitable

teaching 12 poor children. This came into effect in 1757 at her death. To
the west and south there is part of a medieval moat and fish ponds.
