The Bishops of Chichester had a house here from the C13 to the C16. The
early house had fallen into ruins by 1363, but of it there survives one bay
of a C13 hall and undercroft. It was rebuilt in the C16, and of this re-
building the principal survival is a tall hexagonal red brick tower, with
taller stair turret, built by Bishop Sherborn about 1519. To the south of
this is one contemporary bay with trefoil-headed windows with dripstones
over. The main farmhouse is to the south again and is of two parallel
ranges. The west range is C18 and red brick. The east range or entrance
front early C19. Two storeys. Three windows. Stuccoed. Slate roof.
Glazing bars intact. Round-headed doorway with semi-circular fanlight and
door of six fielded panels.
