History

Detailed History

To the south of the A1304 on Bungalow Hill, near an old windmill stands a remarkable Sino-Gothic house. It consists of three sweeping pagoda-like roofs over flint walls with pointed windows which are repeated on its two single side wings. It was constructed by the owner of the windmill during the 19th century.
