The cottage, also known as The Old Vicarage, was restored in 1989 and is now in use as a museum and visitor centre. It has a mud and stud east wall dating to the mid 17th century, with the others being 18th century brick. It served as the vicarage until 1734 when a replacement was built nearby and the old building sold. Nearby is a single story red brick workshop with a datestone reading 'WP 1870' above the door. It was built probably for agricultural use but is currently used as a blacksmith's workshop. {2}
