This house is an amalgamation of two c1600 houses with possibly more ancient origins. These houses were gable end to the street and a range was built parallel with the street later in the C17. This part was then heightened and given a mid C18 brick facade and in the early C19 the entrance with its portico and the window above it were added and the lower range to the right was incorporated with the main house. There has been little external change on the street side since then but the rear wings have been altered in the late C20 and a whole additional rear wing built. In use as a Monmouth School Boarding House and the resulting alterations have disguised much of the internal evidence.
