(5). Cottage, now two tenements, about 300 yards S.E. of the church. It is of two storeys, the upper storey partly in the roof; the timber-framing has diagonal braces, but has been partly replaced with brick. The original central chimney stack has one square shaft, set diagonally; the second stack was added in the 18th century.
(6). Cottage, opposite to (5), is of two storeys. At the E. end the timber-framing of the gable has a naturally curved tie-beam. At the W. end is an addition, made late in the 17th century, larger than the original cottage, and built of stone; the roof is tiled; the chimney stack is of stone.
(7). The Manor House, about ¼ mile S.E. of the church, is of two storeys, built of stone rubble in the middle of the 17th century, and partly re-faced with brick; the roofs are tiled. The plan is L-shaped, the wings extending towards the E. and S., with a modern lean-to addition in the angle between them. In the N. wall, on the ground floor, is an original window of three lights, and, on the first floor, are two windows, each of two lights; all have moulded wooden frames and mullions, with iron casements and simple furniture. The E. front of the S. wing has a gable, partly faced or re-built with brick. The chimney stacks are original, and have square detached shafts, with linked caps.
(8). Cottage, 130 yards E. of the Manor House, is of two storeys, the upper storey in the roof, built probably in the 17th century, and timber-framed, with a stone plinth, and brick filling which is probably not original; the N. end has been re-built or re-faced with stone, the W. front with brick. The roof is thatched. The plan is of the central chimney type.
