Hornets Farm. This was formerly Horners manor and dates at least to the 17th. The farm-house is 18th, and timber-framed. A window in an outhouse commemorates the Local Government Act, 1929, to de-rate farm land and I said to have come from a chapel in Notting Hill.
Private burial ground near the drive gate of Hornets where the former farm owner, Isaac Mead and his wife, Susan, are buried
Gubbiss Farm. This has been demolished but stood near Hornets and Butt Hatch. The house was 16th 
The Old Rectory. 17th House. 2 storey timber framed and plastered.
