Former Great House built by Roger Williams, High Sheriff of Monmouthshire, in mid C16 with stone from Usk Castle. He was taken to court by the Duke of Beaufort for this; subsequently granted manor and estate of Llangibby. Roger Williams also purchased from the Crown most of Usk Priory property after the Dissolution. Later the building was converted into a terrace of separate dwellings probably early C19 (called workmen's cottages by Bradney). Former Great Staircase removed. Cross wing (unlisted) was added later to E end of range. Stables etc thought to be sited to SW.
A barrel vaulted second floor runs throughout the building under the roof.
