This wonderful fortified, former rectory in Wales dates back to the 16th century, and was put to practical use in the Civil War. A two storey wing which includes the vaulted cellar was later added in the early 19th century and the fine 18th century staircase was installed around 1850. The church commissioners sold the property into private hands in 1908.
