History

Originally the Coach House to number 17 The Butts. Coaches came in through the large gates at the front (now a garden), and in through large doors on the ground floor (now French windows).

In 1977 a mummified cat was found in the attic – thought to have been put there to ward off evil spirits.

Garden wall south-west side partly rebuilt in early 1980s, due to clay brick bowing with age. Extension built in mid 1980s on north side as a utility room, in sympathetic style. Extended further in 2012 with as a kitchen extension.
