plank door in 2 storey porch, in the upper storey a 2 light Dering
window and small bullseye over that. Interior: the central doorway
leads into a barrel vaulted passage through the central chimney stack,
an arrangement dating from the insertion of the stack into an earlier
screens passage. The house to right of the central stack stands on a
4 bay vaulted crypt. This has a blocked doorway to the front of the
house, and an internal stairway into the house. On either end wall are
ogee-headed niches. The vault ribs are double-chamfered, the whole
structure has similarities to nearby church of All Saints, and like the
main body of the church dates to the time of Sir Thomas de Aldon, owner
of the manor c1329-61, and who had licence to crenellate his house 1339.
