A photogenic study in the black-and-white vernacular, it is a model of the timbered tradition from its close-studded
core to its later, complementary offshoots.
The Guildhall, where the ancient Court Leet and Court Baron meet, nudges against the church; here is a close-studded
building with an archbraced roof above the fireplace which bears Ralph de Botoler's coat of arms - he built the place more than 500 years ago.
Most notable from the outside is the west wing of the property, with its close-studded
timbering, herringbone and lozenge detailing to the upper floor and multi-paned, diamond leaded lights.
