Built of rubble with dressings of Reigate clunch and brick with some having bone set tiles. North door of 2 square orders with attached nook shafts sectioned as painted rolls, water leaf capitals. Re-roofed between circa 1300 and circa 1404 when desecrated and floored with timber - for use as a granary.
