Some fabric from the abbey, or from the 16th c. house that succeeded it, is thought to be incorporated in the present house (Nprn45089).
It is possible that the nineteenth c. park about the house may have developed from a medieval park (Nprn307909).
There are ruins of a med. tithe barn (Nprn43276) to the NE of the house and the church, formerly a chapel, to the W (Nprn307297) has been assoviated with the abbey.
