Leland described it as being built of timber except for the front
of the hall which was of brick. On July 4 1558 Nicholas Heath
Archbishop of York gave instructions for parts to be demolished,
these were the gate house, a building adjoining the hall, the
hall and a gallery leading from the hall to the chapel, the
pantry and kitchen. c.1637 most of the remaining buildings were
demolished, only leaving enough to provide a suitable farmhouse

been the residence of William Brewster, to the left of the right
doorway are 3 C20 plaques commemorating this and the sailing of
the Mayflower. H.M. and M. Dexter, The England and Holland of
