Trevor Roman, “This is a superb example of a single bay Wealden hall house and can be regarded as perhaps the best preserved of its type remaining in England. The cottage was once The Old Shop in the downland village of Bignor. It was built in the 15th century on a natural outcrop of rock, which forms a plinth for the cottage to sit on”.
