HISTORY AND POINTS OF INTEREST The Old Parsonage dates back to 1713, when it was home to Maurice Alexander, the village Parson, whose initials can be seen today in the plasterwork to the dormer window gable on the left hand side of the house.

During the late C17 & early C18 century the house was subdivided into 3 cottages.

The current owners have enjoyed living in the property for the last five years during which time they have undertaken to fully renovate the house. The reed thatch was replaced in 2016/17 together with the full renovation of the property.
