This property is part of The Aylesbury Vale Portfolio and was purchased by the Trust in 1900. It is the second property to have been acquired by the Trust. The Courthouse is a fine example of an early 15th-century timber-frame construction, set in an idyllic village. The residential property is set over the ground floor and was historically the village poor house. Above the ground floor apartment is The Courthouse which was the base for parish activities for four hundred years and was the venue for the annual manorial court which dealt with tithes and crimes such as selling bad fish, brewing without a licence, or overcharging customers. The first floor Courthouse is open to the public on a Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays between March and September.
