Set in the heart of Church Street is Mant House, originally called Gedding, which dates back to 1870, when it was the home of Mr Parsons a local solicitor who used the garden room (now annexe) as his office. During the war the property was used by the Red Cross to house Belgian refugees. In 1979 it was purchased and turned into Pauline's Tea Rooms, where it served the village for many years.
