The original newel stair is largely intact to the attics, altered near the bottom. HISTORICAL NOTE: the siting, near the church and on land connected with Jericho Priory (qv), the height and general character, suggest this house was built as a vicarage by John Smyth, owner of Jericho Priory from 1594 to 1621.
