The Bury
TL 4731 41/131 26.11.51


Originally a Royal Manor House of early C13 date which appears to have left
the crown as a gift circa 1260 (Hewitt). It is built to the east of the moated
site of a pre-conquest Norman castle. A timber-framed and plastered house
with an aisled hall, a cross entrance passage and buttery at the west end.
The floor and chimney stack were inserted in the C16-C17 and the south front
was built out in the C17 with 3 large gables. A smaller gabled wing projects
on the centre gable, jettied out over the entrance doorway which has an old
boarded door. Casement windows. Roof tiled, swept down at the rear to ground
storey window level. Much of the original frame remains exposed on the interior
and one framed truss with long passing braces and open lapped joints survives
almost intact. The others have been mostly cut away. (RCHM 12).
