Buildings of Note

The Malt House

Picture of the Malt House today

We do not know when the Malt House was built but there is evidence inside of a crooked frame building which dates it to possibly the 16th. century if not earlier.

It has been occupied by many people over the years. We have evidence from census records that corn sellers and maltsers have occupied it. For many years the Yates's, a well known farming family were the tenants. From the 1970's to the 1990's M.P. Nicholas Budgen owned it. 

It is now no longer a working farm but remains a family home.
