This great brick-built eighteenth century mansion was the home of the Vyner family.

The architect was Matthew Brettingham (1699-1769).

The house was only infrequently occupied in the Victorian period and following the death of Robert Vyner in 1874 it was demolished.

This small church (almost hidden by trees) was built in 1754 by Robert Vyner, whose country house once stood nearby.

Within the church are grand memorials to members of the Vyner family.

Looking east. The chancel arch is flanked by tapered Ionic pilasters.

The simple timber pews date from the nineteenth century but the two-decker pulpit and vicar's pew, from Skelton,Yorkshire, are from an earlier period..
