The 'Priest's House'

The 'Priest's House' is a miniature 12th century building, perhaps an oratory or shrine. Over the door is a fragmentary lintel with the representation of an ecclesiastic or monarch flanked by two abbots, one with a crozier and the other with a bell. At the east end is a unique alcove with a Romanesque arch.
