The hither end of this range of building which I had fitted as a Brewhouse for the Rectory two years before was now unroofed, the walls carried higher and a Room formed over the Brewing place with outer stone stairs.
This year I also built at a cost of £30 the little Barn for the use of the School Master, in the corner of “Butcroft.”
