and rebuilt 1823 and later. Coursed rubble with freestone quoins and dressings,

Later part larger in Tudor-Gothic style, two and a half storeys, parapet

to the north of the house by a lower extension is a gabled former coach-house,

inscriptions inside including advice 'to my successor' by Rev H T Ellacombe

arboretum cultivated by Rev H T Ellacombe, who wrote "In a Gloucestershire
Garden" and "In my Vicarage Garden and Elsewhere" circa 1893.
